# best practice to present multiple images in paper

I want to present 8 images one by one. This is an evolution of a system, so the images should be big that reader can spot the difference. I want two images on a single page. The problem is that default latex formatting put text in every free space between images. Tex:

bla bla

\begin{figure}[h!]
\centering
\includegraphics[scale=0.5]{01}
\caption{ 2000K.}
\end{figure}

\begin{figure}[h!]
\centering
\includegraphics[scale=0.5]{02}
\caption{1500K.}
\end{figure}

\begin{figure}[h!]
\centering
\includegraphics[scale=0.5]{09}
\caption{1100K.}
\end{figure}

\begin{figure}[h!]
\centering
\includegraphics[scale=0.5]{11}
\caption{1000K.}
\end{figure}

%---------------

\begin{figure}[h!]
\centering
\includegraphics[scale=0.5]{14}
\caption{ 900K.}
\end{figure}

\begin{figure}[h!]
\centering
\includegraphics[scale=0.5]{17}
\caption{ 850K.}
\end{figure}

\begin{figure}[h!]
\centering
\includegraphics[scale=0.5]{21}
\caption{ 750K.}
\end{figure}

\begin{figure}[h!]
\centering
\includegraphics[scale=0.5]{31}
\caption{400K.}
\end{figure}

I could force the formatting with \newpage, but it seems that there should be a better way.

If you are using only the h! option anyway, maybe it's better not to use floats at all. Instead just insert every picture with \includegraphics at the place where it's supposed to be. –  Count Zero Aug 31 '12 at 15:14
And how to add caption? –  lukas Aug 31 '12 at 15:36
use captionof from the caption package –  cmhughes Aug 31 '12 at 15:49
I have seen some floats with a H specifier, which means force the float to be here I.e. you get the benefits of the float environment with the knowledge that the float won't move in the document. I don't recall if this works for figures though. –  Daryl Aug 31 '12 at 21:36

As alternative to avoid floats, use only the option p (page of floats) in the figures. If needed, use \clearpage to forcing also the process of accumulated floats instead of \newpage that only ends the current page (or column), may be allowing to some floats to start in the new page.
