I'm submitting to a conference with limited page space and need to fit my figures all on one page. The layout needs to look like the following: enter image description here

I've figured out how to turn a figure sideways, but I can't figure out how to specify to place the figures in a bottom right under the top fig and next to the sideways fig.

  • Do you need captions under each figure?

Since you do need captions for each figure, you can use subcaption and minipage to achieve the desired output.


\usepackage{mwe} % for images and lipsum



    \caption{Subfigure 1}
    \caption{Subfigure 2}
      \caption{Subfigure 3}
      \caption{Subfigure 4}
  \caption{Caption for all four figures}



enter image description here

  • this is great, but I do need captions for each one. Is there a reason I can't caption normally here?

  • @jbbj94: Then you'll need to add the subcaption package. See my updated answer for details.

    @jbbj94: Normally only one caption is allowed in each figure environment. To have multiple captions, you'll need to introduce the subfigure environment within a figure. Then the subcaption package will allow you to add subcaptions to each figure.
