How to put a picture in a new page after the title page? I write it as follows, but it appears in the top and with a numbered page.

\begin{document}
\title{ }
 \author{me \\
 \includegraphics[width=0.5\textwidth]{logo.jpg}}
  \date{Thesis\\
  for \\
  September 2012}
  \newpage
\begin{center}
  \includegraphics[width=.7\textwidth]{basm.png}
  \end{center}
\maketitle
\end{document}

The \title, \author and \date macros just store their contents in auxiliary macros that is used upon execution of \maketitle. Moreover, \maketitle issues a page break if there is contents preceding it.

As such, I would assume the following would work for you:

% In preamble
\title{My thesis}
\author{me \\
  \includegraphics[width=0.5\textwidth]{logo.jpg}}
\date{Thesis\\
  for \\
  September 2012}

\begin{document}
\maketitle

\clearpage
\thispagestyle{empty}
\begin{center}
  \includegraphics[width=.7\textwidth]{basm.png}
\end{center}
\clearpage

% Other document content

\end{document}

You might also consider issuing \pagenumbering{arabic} as part of your "Other document content", to start numbering from page 1 again. However, without a complete MWE showing the structure, it's difficult to assess your use case.


The titlepage environment is also a possibility here. You could use, for example:

enter image description here

\documentclass{report}
\usepackage[demo]{graphicx}% http://ctan.org/pkg/graphicx
\title{My thesis}
\author{Me, me and ME}
\date{\today \\[\bigskipamount] \includegraphics[width=2cm]{me}}
\begin{document}
\begin{titlepage}
\maketitle
\end{titlepage}

\clearpage
\thispagestyle{empty}
\begin{center}
  \includegraphics[width=.6\textwidth]{basm}
\end{center}
\clearpage

Here is some more content.
\end{document} ​

Thanks, but it appears before the title page! –  Sara Aug 8 '12 at 22:36
    
@Sara: According to your original requirement you wanted the image to appear after the title page. In my example I placed \maketitle before inserting the image basm, followed by a \clearpage. How can the image appear before the title? –  Werner Aug 8 '12 at 22:39
    
yes thank you very much :), I understand now. –  Sara Aug 8 '12 at 22:43
