# How to make a figure leave less space from top?

I have 2 columns in a beamer frame. The first one on the left contains a picture while the second, on the right, an enumerate.

    \begin{column}{0.5\textwidth}
\begin{figure}
\centering
\includegraphics[width=4cm]{java5.pdf}
\caption{Our own test of downsampling}
\label{fig:3}
\end{figure}
\end{column}


the figure looks akwardly to start 5% of frame size below the same level enumerate starts in neighboring column.

How to get them to same level?

Try to use option [T] for the columns environment. See 12.7 Splitting a Frame into Multiple Columns in the beamer user guide. –  Claudio Fiandrino Jun 2 '12 at 6:29
I am using it in my code. –  user494461 Jun 2 '12 at 6:31
Could you report a minimal working example with just that frame? This will help in understanding the problem and giving you the right answer. –  Claudio Fiandrino Jun 2 '12 at 6:34
If you want to optically align a figure with a displayed list you may need manual tweaking, for example \vspace*{-1cm} just after \begin{figure} would move it up –  David Carlisle Jun 2 '12 at 17:02
thanks, that did the trick –  user494461 Jun 3 '12 at 6:26
