# Four panel, image with borders

I am trying to make a landscape PDF with borders (4) where I will place 4 figures. Ideally the line would be 3 point in width...I have attached a JPG of what I am thinking. I would like to place figures in the areas a-d.

Can someone give me a starting point?

And what margins and size should the page have? Must the images be centered inside each frame? Is this the only contents of the document or is this a special page in a portrait document? –  Gonzalo Medina Aug 22 '12 at 22:52
Page should be A4 with 2 cm margins of top/sides. –  Will Aug 22 '12 at 22:57

In the following example I defined a new command \FramedImage with one optional argument (the options to be used in the optional argument of \includegraphics) and a mandatory one (the name of the image file). This command places its contents inside a minipage enclosed in a \fbox to obatin the frame:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[a4paper,margin=2cm,landscape]{geometry}
\usepackage[demo]{graphicx}

\newcommand\FramedImage[2][]{%
\setlength\fboxsep{2pt}% change according to needs
\setlength\fboxrule{3pt}%
\noindent\fbox{%
\begin{minipage}[c][\dimexpr.5\textheight-1.5\fboxrule-2\fboxsep\relax][c]{\dimexpr.5\textwidth-1.5\fboxrule-2\fboxsep\relax}
\centering
\includegraphics[#1]{#2}
\end{minipage}}%
}

\begin{document}

\thispagestyle{empty}
\FramedImage{image1}\hspace*{-3pt}\FramedImage{image2}\\[-3pt]\offinterlineskip
\FramedImage{image3}\hspace*{-3pt}\FramedImage{image4}

\end{document}


The demo option for graphicx simply replaces actual figures with black rectangles; do not use that option in your actual document.

This seems to rotate the images.. perhaps because the OP wanted landscape. What is required to use it in portrait? –  John Nov 14 at 16:13
The rotation issue was my mistake (not an issue). However, how about adding a), b), c), etc.? –  John Nov 14 at 16:42
@John With the possibility to cross-reference them? I think it would be better to open a follow-up question. –  Gonzalo Medina Nov 14 at 17:53
