I have several images in a figure which can not come on a single page. The images near the bottom are trying to insert inside the bottom instead of going to the new page. I am using a package \raggedbottom because earlier I was facing the problem of unusual space between equation.

Please suggest me, how can I move the images to the next page which are near the bottom.


The black line above is the bottom of first page.

    a figure is a box and never breaks, you need to split it up into smaller chunks Commented May 19, 2015 at 10:20
  • @DavidCarlisle: But then the numbering of figures will get disturbed. Is there any way that I can start the numbering in sequence with the previous image and then I will write a final description.

    Not necessarily disturbed. You have shown no code (always a bad idea:-) so we don't know how you have done the sub-figure labels (a)--(t) but there are always ways of having a continuation figure that re-starts the sub captions so (say) (a)-(n) in the first and (o)-(t) in the second, but the details depend on what you have already.

  • @DavidCarlisle: Sorry, I will update the code in a minute

    Package caption includes a \ContinuedFloat mechanism.

Your issue with placement here seem to resolve when using the following:

  1. Don't use a float. Instead, use the float package's [H] float specifier to set the float inside a minipage. This will give you preference over the (non-)float placement.

  2. Break the float manually at the desired location.

  3. Use \ContinuedFloat from the caption package to retain the existing \caption number.

enter image description here





  \subfloat[Original image]{\includegraphics{example-image}} \\
  \subfloat[]{\includegraphics{example-image-c}} \\



Placing the images using [H] removes the issue of the last page float being set vertically centred, since the float is set like regular text, which will end up at the top of the page.
