# Image shift / offset

I'm writing text with some custom images (symbols) in the text line, I add them using \includegraphics, but the images align with the text at the bottom, which is annoying, since the images are slightly larger than the text. How do I move the image a bit lower, so that the image stops just a bit below the text.

E.G. The diagram \$\includegraphics{images/diagram_A}\$ is neat.

It would be nice to have in the \$ enviroment.

 Is having it between \$ symbols important? This seems like a very strange requirement. – Mark S. Everitt Mar 7 '12 at 13:25

You may wrap your \includegraphics{...} into a \raisebox

Edit:

This is\raisebox{1ex}{\includegraphics[height=2ex]{/Users/brf/Pictures/logos/dode.PDF}}okay

Or create a newcommand:

\newcommand{\moveup}{[1]{%
\raisebox{1ex}{\includegraphics[height=2ex]{/Users/brf/Pictures/logos/#1}}}

Then blabla\moveup{dode.PDF}bla

 Would you like to elaborate a bit? – egreg Mar 7 '12 at 13:27 Something like this: raisebox{10pt}{stuff} will move the stuff 10pt above the baseline. – Peter Breitfeld Mar 7 '12 at 13:34 @PeterBreitfeld Please include an example in your answer so that others may find it easier. – N.N.
