# How to print without the image

I want to print a document without print the images too: just the position of them so the printer make the process faster (I have some big image and i don't want to spend ink and time to print them).

Is it possible ?

Thanks

• you can do this by setting \documentclass[draft]{report} or book or article or whatever documentclass you are using. Just make sure to use the draft option – Mario S. E. May 26 '14 at 17:48
• Also check out the endfloat package. – Sverre May 26 '14 at 17:49

You can achieve the desired output by using the documentclass option draft. E.g.:

\documentclass[draft]{report}

\usepackage{graphicx}

\begin{document}

Hello.  This is my picture

\begin{figure}
\includegraphics{myfilename}
\caption{Figure's Caption}\label{fig:figuresample}
\end{figure}

\end{document}


Also, as stated by Sverre, you can always check the endfloat package, which seems to have some other options to leave a space where the figure would be.
