# Table with figures

I have a special table layout in which i want to place figures. The table looks like this:

"-------------------------------------------------"
" Figure 1       | Figure 2                      |"
"----------------|                               |"
" Figure 3       |                               |"
"-------------------------------------------------"


I created this table with the following LaTeX code:

\begin{table*}[t]
\begin{tabular}{l l}

\includegraphics[width=0.35\textwidth]{Figure1} & \multirow{2}
{*}{\includegraphics[width=0.65\textwidth]{Figure2}} \\

\includegraphics[width=0.35\textwidth]
{Figure3}

\end{tabular}
\end{table*}


However when it comes to layouting the table it places the figure somewhere in the vertical center of the multirow cell, like this:

"-------------------------------------------------"
" Figure 1       |                               |"
"----------------| Figure 2                      |"
" Figure 3       |                               |"
"-------------------------------------------------"


How do I get it up to the desired position (same top position as Figure 1)?

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

\multirow{nrows}[bigstruts]{width}[fixup]{text}

Simply try a few lengths in fixup; 12pt or 1em may be good starting points, but it will take some trial and error whenever the table formatting changes to find a new, good position.
(I wonder what would happen if you added a \vfill at the end of text -- will it fill the table cell or will it fill far too much?)
