Currently I use the picture environment to arrange graphics and text and I notice that the put command places the lower-left corner of the object at the specified position.

Now, I need to specify the positions of the lower-right corners of them. How can one do this?

Why do I need this? I have a lot of images with the same specification except that they can extend leftward or upward but never rightward or downward. And I need to put a text label to the "same" position of each image. Here the "same" means, "relative to the lower-right corner".

  • put(X,Y){\makebox(0,0)[br]{<<object>>}} ? – user4686 Apr 5 '18 at 7:37
  • What objects are you using in \put? – egreg Apr 5 '18 at 9:01
  • @jfbu: That's it! Thanks. I guess I should write an answer to my own question? – Ryo Apr 7 '18 at 3:03
  • @egreg: They are \includegraphics{}. – Ryo Apr 7 '18 at 3:04

You could use


where X and Y are the coordinates and <<object>> stand for the "object" referred too in your question.
