You could use the textpos package for absolute positioning of figures or text boxes.

Here's an example:


with the syntax \begin{textblock}{*width*}(*x-position,y-position*)

\begin{picture}(50,50) \put(250,0){\hbox{\includegraphics[scale=0.3]{figs/set}}} \end{picture} This works simply to locate picture... Kindly give your suggestion over this code with your code. – Palani Kannan Oct 25 '11 at 14:11
@PalaniKannan: good! You could make an answer from that code in your comment. – Stefan Kottwitz Oct 25 '11 at 14:13
@PalaniKannan: with textpos you could use a grid, relative positioning, and positioning on the background, For a simple single placement a picture environment is also fine. – Stefan Kottwitz Oct 25 '11 at 14:17

As far as I remember,



\begin{tikzpicture}[remember picture,overlay]
  \node[anchor=south west,inner sep=0pt] at ($(current page.south west)+(2cm,5cm)$) {

should place imgfile.pdf at x=2cm and y=5cm from the lower left page corner.

A more convenient and flexible macro for absolute positioning is given here: tex.stackexchange.com/a/311031 . – AlexG Jun 28 at 8:24
