I am trying to insert a background image in my LaTeX file, but as I write the commands and compile, the background images are in the correct positions but the rest of the images get shifted to the end of the document.

I am using \begin{figure}[h].....\end{figure}. Still the images get displaced whereas when I run the same file without background image, the rest of the images come to their proper places.

    Welcome to TeX.SX! Please add a minimal working example (MWE) that illustrates your problem. It will be much easier for us to reproduce your situation and find out what the issue is when we see compilable code, starting with \documentclass{...} and ending with \end{document}.

  • The wallpaper package can help you with background images.

Are you trying to make a poster (or presentation), or any ordinary writing doc? I have done a poster where I put a \usebackgroundtemplate in Beamer. In that case my attempt was successful.enter image description here. If you are trying to do this type, I can send you my script...or in a short form it is --

\documentclass[final, 12pt]{beamer}
\usepackage[absolute,overlay]{textpos}% text under figure
\usepackage{fancybox}%different shape box

\usebackgroundtemplate{\centering \includegraphics[width=\paperwidth, height=120cm]{AGC_figure/P-1.jpg}}
\addtobeamertemplate{block begin}{\pgfsetfillopacity{0.85}}{\pgfsetfillopacity{1}}

    \usebeamertemplate{block begin}}
    \usebeamertemplate{block end}%
\setbeamercolor{uppercolgreen}{fg=white,bg=green!35}%Using this you can change the box color
\setbeamercolor{eecks} {bg=white, fg=black}
\setbeamercolor{eecks2}{bg=white, fg=blue}
