I'm Edd. I'm a Computer Science graduate from the University of Bath, currently working as a software developer at Ocado, in Hatfield, UK. I've experience working in a number of industries, including military and civil engineering, and working on very different types of project.

I reguarly code in C, C++ and Objective-C, and have experience using Python, Java, PHP and Ada as well as the basics such as Bash-scripting. I'm keen to learn C# and the .Net framework in the near future. I'm happy to work with html and XML, and I typeset the vast majority of my university work using LaTeX.

Outside of work, I'm a keen photographer. I'm a Canon user, shooting with a 5D. I'm interested in landscapes and cityscapes, as well as bits of sports photography. I'm wanting to learn more about how I can use flash to enhance my photos.

comment Custom figure insertion in tex document
@pban2 Is it possible to replicate the problem using something like the [blindtext](ctan.org/pkg/blindtext) package to insert dummy text and a similarly sized placeholder image? This would mean we'd have a MWE to understand the specifics of this problem.

@pmav99 That would be a much better solution that I was unaware of. Do you want to post that and I'll delete my answer (assuming I can still delete accepted answers)

@pmav99 Thanks. I know it's not a good method it's just the only way I know. I've converted the disadvantages to a list and included yours to try and make it clear this is very non-ideal.

Can you provide a minimum working example required to produce this, and provide a link to (or possibly hardcode the dimensions of) the image. It may be that there is not enough room after the initial text on Pg2 to fit the figure in.

Welcome to TeX.StackExchange. Would it be possible to provide a MWE and image to show what's causing your problem and what it looks like? As an aside, StackExchange sites don't require users to include a greeting in their posts.

@Sharpie Beat me to. I've deleted mine as I didn't notice the "answer added" bar.
