# Manually Place a Figure in LaTeX (here: End of Chapter/Section)

I have a little problem with the placement of my picture. I want to insert it at the end of the introduction chapter but its place is not where I want.

I think the problem become from the:

\begin{figure}
...
\end{figure}


Because when I insert the picture without using \begin{figure}... the picture is at the end of the chapter as I want.

Look the picture below.

• Welcome to TeX.SX! Does \begin{figure}[b]... help? Please help us (and also you) and add a minimal working example (MWE), that illustrates your problem. – Bobyandbob Jun 15 '17 at 10:01
• Did you see the posting How to influence the position of float environments like figure and table in LaTeX? A separate question: Why did you set the tag "table of contents"? – Mico Jun 15 '17 at 10:03
• BTW do your self a favour an unlearn using \\ in the text, all those underfull vbox baddness 10000 are because of the \\ we can see from your code image. There is no need to have spaces between paragraphs when you also have paragraph indentation, it makes the text look less professional. – daleif Jun 15 '17 at 10:23

## Exact/Manual Placing/Positioning of Figures/Pictures/Tables/"Normally Floating Objects" in LaTeX by Using the float Package

• The float package provides the H placement option.
• H places a figure (float) exactly where you put it in the code.
• The remaining code is the same as for normal figures (floats).
• Warning: Many very experienced users here seem to dislike this solution for some reason whereas I still like it because the code is the same for floating and non-floating objects.
• Normally one is supposed to let LaTeX decide where to place a figure (for a nicer layout).
• I found myself often in a situation (e. g. supervisor wishes a specific position) where I was happy that the float package offers a manual approach.

\documentclass{article}

\usepackage{graphicx}
\usepackage{float}

\usepackage{blindtext}

\begin{document}

\blindtext

\begin{figure}[H] % <-- Use [H] for exactly here
\centering
\includegraphics[width=0.8\linewidth]{example-image-a}
\caption{I am a caption.}
\end{figure}

\blindtext
