# Center cover page (Image) vertically [duplicate]

So I've designed an image for the cover of my book and I want to center it vertically, I tried two things and both failed. It's a small image that DOES NOT cover the whole page.

I tired with vspace first, it doesn't move the image, no matter what.

\vspace{3in}
\includegraphics{147.jpg}
\thispagestyle{empty}


And also I tried with vfill.

Should have used vspace* instead of vspace Example:
\vspace*{3in}
