# How to vertically align 3 images with subfigure?

This code:

\begin{figure*}[t]
\begin{center}
\begin{subfigure}[a]{0.3\textwidth}
\label{im:device_front}
\includegraphics[width=\textwidth]{images/bsn_side}
\caption{a) Frontal view of the sensor system}
\end{subfigure}
\begin{subfigure}[b]{0.3\textwidth}
\label{im:device_schuin}
\includegraphics[width=\textwidth]{images/bsn_front}
\caption{b) Perspective view of the sensor system}
\end{subfigure}
\begin{subfigure}[b]{0.25\textwidth}
\label{im:device_side}
\includegraphics[width=\textwidth]{images/bsn_schuin}
\caption{c) Side view of the sensor system}
\end{subfigure}
\caption{Overview of the system as worn by the subjects}
\label{default}
\end{center}
\end{figure*}


produces result:

But I want them to be horizontally aligned. How can I do this?

Use [b] for the first subfigure, similar to the other two. You should also consider using subfig since subfigure is deprecated. –  Werner Jul 31 '12 at 18:50
aah, thank you, I thought the [a],[b] and [c] was for enumeration purposes. –  jorrebor Jul 31 '12 at 18:53
@Werner OP's probably using subcaption package. –  percusse Jul 31 '12 at 19:34

The interface provided by the subfigure package, specifies the first (optional) argument to indicate the vertical alignment. Using [b] should align be bottom of the sub figures. Analogously, [t] should align the tops.

Instead of numbering the captions manually

\caption{a) ...}


you could use the accompanying \subfigure command:

\subfigure{...}


and change the format of the numbering to your liking.

subcaption seems to be incompatible with subfig. Is there a solution. But I have many subfloats. Is there a solution with subfig / one that does not require to change all subfloats (without setting height explicitly)? –  moose Dec 17 '13 at 6:47

I simply couldn't pass this one by, if only just to produce a solution that makes note of the obvious similarities between the sample provided and the classic Tron Guy.

The actual solution uses subfig package, but who cares.

\documentclass[10pt,a4paper]{article}
\usepackage[latin1]{inputenc}
\usepackage{graphicx}
\captionsetup*[subfigure]{position=bottom}
\begin{document}
\begin{figure}[h]
\centering
\subfloat[Frontal view]{%
\includegraphics[height=5cm]{tron_side.jpg}%
\label{fig:left}%
}
\subfloat[Perspective view]{%
\includegraphics[height=5cm]{tron_front.jpg}%
\label{fig:middle}%
}
\subfloat[Side view]{%
\includegraphics[height=5cm]{tron_right2.jpg}%
\label{fig:right}%
}
\caption{Overview of the sensor system as worn by the subjects.}
\label{fig:default}
\end{figure}
\end{document}

+1 for the comparison :) –  jorrebor Aug 9 '13 at 8:24

I found this code:

\begin{figure}
\subfigure{\includegraphics[width=67mm]{PipeScannerUnderGround}}
\subfigure{\raisebox{10mm}{\includegraphics[width=47mm]{CylScanGeometryPipe}}}
\caption{}
\end{figure}


here

Worked perfectly :)
