# Placing Image within double column text without resizing

I want the image to occupy both columns for good resolution within a two-column document and also want the text in two column format. I used following command, but it overlaps with the text in other column.

What should I do? using figure* I could rectify it, but the caption is appearing too left.

• you want figure* for two-column figure – David Carlisle Jan 26 '15 at 13:52
• It worked but the caption is more towards left. – Ehsa Jan 26 '15 at 13:55
• Perhaps you did something wrong, if you show what you did someone could help. Every question should have a small example document from \documentclass to \end{docuemnt} that demonstrates the problem. You can use \usepackage[demo]{graphicx} so we don't need your actual image. – David Carlisle Jan 26 '15 at 13:59
• \documentclass[journal]{IEEEtran} \usepackage{graphicx} \begin{document} \title{Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing} \section{INTRODUCTION} – Ehsa Jan 26 '15 at 14:45
• you can edit the question rather than adding code in comments (but it's not very useful unless it is a complete document that demonstrates the problem) – David Carlisle Jan 26 '15 at 14:47

The class is designed to follow IEEE design style which is mostly left justified, however it has a conference option that uses centred captions.

Here is what you may want your picture look like. If you need to center the figure caption as well, just add \usepackage{caption} in your preamble below \documentclass[journal]{IEEEtran}.

I used the following MWE for brevity:

\documentclass[journal]{IEEEtran}
\usepackage{graphicx}
\usepackage{lipsum}
\begin{document}

\title{Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing}
\maketitle

\section{INTRODUCTION}
\lipsum[1-3]

\begin{figure*}

\end{figure*}

\lipsum[4-19]

\end{document}

• What is the function of \lipsum? – Ehsa Jan 26 '15 at 15:42
• It is to fill with random text to have the look of a real written paper. It is usually used for testing purposes. – AboAmmar Jan 26 '15 at 15:43
• That's the same as my answer except it has a left aligned caption which the OP said in comments did not want. – David Carlisle Jan 26 '15 at 15:54
