How do I put two figures next to each other (in one row) while figure 1 overlap (partially) figure 2? I have seen some other questions however I want no space between figures and part of a figure overlap other figure.

    We have a lot of questions exactly preventing such an overlapping, perhaps you should look at them to get what they have done wrong ;-)

  • Please help us help you and add a minimal working example (MWE) that illustrates your problem. Reproducing the problem and finding out what the issue is will be much easier when we see compilable code, starting with \documentclass{...} and ending with \end{document}
