# Too much space below figures [duplicate]

I am trying to use graphicx package to include figures. However it seems to leave too much space between the figure and caption.

My LaTeX lines are

\begin{center}
\includegraphics[scale=0.6]{1hamlabels.eps}
\end{center}


Is there any way to reduce this space while using graphicx package? I dont wanna use tikz or anythin like that.

Thanks

• 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}. – Paul Gessler Feb 11 '14 at 5:49
• The center environment is the culprit of the vertical space. You only want to insert your figures without inserting them in a figure environment? – karlkoeller Feb 11 '14 at 5:56

You can add some vertical negative space before \end{center}, e.g.

\begin{center}
\includegraphics[scale=0.6]{1hamlabels.eps}
\vspace*{-5pt}
\end{center}


MWE:

\documentclass{article}

\usepackage[demo]{graphicx} % remove the option demo in your document

\usepackage{lipsum} % only for the example

\begin{document}

\lipsum[2]

\begin{center}
\includegraphics[scale=0.6]{1hamlabels.eps}
\end{center}

\lipsum[1]

\newpage

\lipsum[2]

\begin{center}
\includegraphics[scale=0.6]{1hamlabels.eps}
\vspace*{-5pt}
\end{center}

\lipsum[1]

\end{document}


Output (you can notice the difference: the left page has not this correction)
