# Figure inside a table, problem formatting text

I having some trouble with the text not beeing at the top inside the tabular when i add the image to the column beside it... I've tried to use wrapfigure, mixing with multirows and multicolumns and I've searched and searched both here and on the forum...

\begin{tabu}{|c|p{8cm}|p{5cm}|}
\hline
1 & Name & Comb.   \\
& \blindtext &  \begin{figure}{[!]\includegraphics[width=5cm]{figure/final_folder_graphic.png}
\end{figure} \\ \hline
2 & Name & Comb.   \\
& \blindtext &
\includegraphics[width=5cm]{figure/final_folder_graphic.png}
\\ \hline


\end{tabu}

Don't use the figure environment, as such a figure doesn't float. Just

\raisebox{-\height}{\includegraphics[width=5cm]{figure/final_folder_graphic.png}}


\documentclass[12pt,a4paper]{article}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage{graphicx}
\usepackage{tabularx}

\usepackage{lipsum}% for dummy text

\usepackage[active,floats,tightpage]{preview}% to show table only
\setlength\PreviewBorder{1em}

\begin{document}
\begin{table}[h]
\centering
\begin{tabularx}{\textwidth}{|c|X|}
\hline
text    &   text        \\
\includegraphics[valign=T,width=60mm]{example-image-4x3.pdf}
&   \vskip-2pt
\lipsum[2]  \\
\hline
\end{tabularx}
\end{table}
\end{document}


Since you didn't provide a MWE, I use some my old similar table. This solution work in any type of table environment. For aligning is essential adjustbox package.

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{graphicx}
\usepackage{multirow}
\usepackage{lipsum}
\usepackage{booktabs}
\begin{document}
\begin{tabular}{|c|p{8cm}|c|}
\toprule
Sno & Name & Comb.   \\
\midrule
1& \vspace{-4.5cm}{ \lipsum[1] }&\multicolumn{1}{|c|}{\includegraphics[width=5cm]{albt.png}}\\
\midrule
2& \vspace{-4.5cm}{ \lipsum[1] }&\multicolumn{1}{|c|}{ \includegraphics[width=5cm]{albt.png}}\\
\bottomrule
\end{tabular}
\end{document}


When use booktabs vertical lines are not used. However, for display purpose I have used.
