According to some coordinate system, whatever that may be, how can I position a scaled image where I want it in the document using the center of the image as the point of reference? For example, something like this:


Here is my minimal working whatever:

    Welcome to TeX.SX! Should this be on every page, or an individual page? See if tex.stackexchange.com/questions/169808/… helps. – Torbjørn T. Apr 24 '14 at 19:19
  • First page only. – Blarxly Apr 24 '14 at 19:23
  • How can you modify this for images? – Blarxly Apr 24 '14 at 19:33
  • Modify what, exactly? – Torbjørn T. Apr 24 '14 at 19:39
  • How can I modify the \AbsolutePosition command so that it positions images instead of circle objects. – Blarxly Apr 24 '14 at 19:39

Simply replace the text that was being placed with the appropriate \includegraphics:

Below is an adaption of What are the ways to position things absolutely on the page to use \includegraphics[<<options>>]{<<file>>} instead of given text.

%% Following obtained from \layout. May need adjustment based on class and
%% page settings.  Alternatively, can set these to 0pt and then position will
%% be relative to bottom left of page.

    % #1 = tikz options
    % #2 = x (from south west corner of page
    % #3 = y
    % #4 = text
    \begin{tikzpicture}[remember picture,overlay, ultra thick]
        %\draw [shift={(#2,#3)},#1]  (current page.south west) circle (2pt) 
        \draw [#1]  ($(current page.south west) + (\BottomLeftX,\BottomLeftY) + (#2,#3)$) 
            %circle (2pt) %  adding `[opacity=0.2]` to the node below will let you see this reference point
                node[] {#4};

  • What about multiple images? I can place my signature in the right place, but when I try to position a pspicture barcode under the address I have in my document things start flying around... – Blarxly Apr 24 '14 at 21:06
  • @Blarxly: You should be able to place as many objects as you want. But if that does not work, you should post a new question with a MWE that reproduces the problem. – Peter Grill Apr 25 '14 at 4:33
