Insert graphic at precise place on a page

I would like to add a picture to my title page, however, for effect, the picture needs to be aligned with the right side of the paper and the bottom of the paper.

How can I do this? I'm using scrartcl as main documentclass. I'm not averse to using the titlepage environment, I just haven't used it before (and also I wouldn't know how to do this on a normal page).

Edit: this is what my relevant code looks like:

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

  • It is always best to compose a MWE that illustrates the problem including the \documentclass and the appropriate packages so that those trying to help don't have to recreate it. – Peter Grill Nov 8 '11 at 15:27

You may still use \maketitle using textpos or eso-pic. For example

\usepackage[demo]{graphicx}% Option demo ist only for demonstration! Please
                           % remove it at your real document!

The title page


Use vfill to push things to the bottom and a \hfill to make it go to the right:

enter image description here

Here I use the geometry package just to show the frame:

\usepackage[demo]{graphicx}% remove [demo] for real example
\usepackage{lipsum}% for dummy text


  • Thanks for your answer, however, this doesn't work in my current setup, it seems to respect margins, is that correct? – Zsub Nov 8 '11 at 15:26
  • Without a MWE it is difficult for me to help further. I have included the image that shows that it is properly paced with respect to the margins. – Peter Grill Nov 8 '11 at 15:28
  • Using \vfill and \hfill to move something to the right bottom corner of the paper (not the text area!) is not a nice job. – Schweinebacke Nov 8 '11 at 15:34
  • Thank you for your effort, but I wanted it outside the margins. Tried your answer and of course it works as you said! (It was just not what I meant, thanks again for helping!) – Zsub Nov 8 '11 at 15:44
  • @Schweinebacke: Even though this is not what the OP wanted, it would be useful if you would elaborate on the downsides of using \vfill as that is not something I have used often. – Peter Grill Nov 9 '11 at 2:06
