So currently I have this code written out:

\includegraphics[width=60mm, scale=0.3]{titanium-distillation-vessel.jpg}
\caption{Argon Vessel, containing TiCl$_{4}$ and Mg}

And the picture sits just on the left of the page, but I don't know any command to let it sit next to a paragraph, like on the left of the page will be writing and on the right I wanted an image, but so far the image just separates the paragraph in two. So is there a way to move the image so that it is side-by-side with a plot of text? Thanks in advance.

    If you want to fix the position, drop the figure environment, use caption package and say \captionof{figure}{Argon Vessel....} instead.

Based on your description in the question, this solution proposes a parallel minipage structure to place text and image side by side with adjustbox package. For alignment c(enter) can be changed to b(ottom) t(op). Remove the [demo] option in the graphicx for real implementation.

enter image description here


\usepackage[show frame,paper size={20cm,15cm}]{geometry}
\captionof{figure}{Argon Vessel, containing TiCl$_{4}$ and Mg}
