I want a simple code for building this simple effect: enter image description here

Two columns: First column should contain the text and the second one should contain the image

  • A MWE would be helpful. Further: It is important to know your document calss you want to use. Maybe this class has a simple option for two/multi column layouts -- usually this is described in the class manual. Feb 8, 2016 at 13:05
  • Is the text wrapping around the image? Or not? Is the whole document in two columns? Or only this part?

  • Or look at the various packages that accommodate figure placement, such as wrapfig.

You can archieve this for example by using minipages:



    \noindent \begin{minipage}{0.5\textwidth}
            \caption{\label{fig:blue_rectangle} Rectangle}
    \end{minipage} \hfill


enter image description here

For more info you can find alot on tex.stackexchange about minipages

Check out this or look here or maybe here or...

Good luck =)
