comment Placing figures inside a two-column document
Well, I solved my question myself. The IEEE template has balancing, column figures and wide figures (the example above is also an IEEE transaction paper), so I didn't use anyone's answer here. I'm not sure what I should do about checking a correct answer (should I create an answer myself and check that?)

comment Placing figures inside a two-column document
Thanks, but today I found out that MiKTeX comes with IEEE Transactions template documents, which do exactly what I want, by way of using simple twocolumn document style, but placing the abstract in the title portion using a specialized command.

comment Placing figures inside a two-column document
How about, is there a way to specify that the figure should be on a specific page on a specific location? (in one of either column, but relative to the page rather than to text) That wouldn't mess with the flowing (of text), and if my figure ever becomes too far separated from the relevant text, I'll just move the figure to another spot. Is that possible?

comment Placing figures inside a two-column document
I'm a noob at latex so I don't even dare go anywhere near extending anything (what do you mean by 2e anyway?). I don't need general cases, but just 2 columns, starting in the middle of my title page (which rules out \twocolumn)

I tried, but the problem with \twocolumn is that it starts a new page, and the title page, including abstract, a single column, from there on two columns. (that PDF is too)
