# Aligning the figures

I have 10 figures. How can I find the best (the most beautiful) configuration? I want to arrange them as below: a single panel at the left, and nine panels (3*3) below it (like an "L"). How can I align the first (single) panel at the left?

I attach the configuration that I have made already. Sorry for attaching a screenshot, the relations are too complicated to bring here.

\begin{figure*}
%\centering
\includegraphics[scale=0.7]{01}\\
\includegraphics[scale=0.6]{02}
\includegraphics[scale=0.6]{03}
\includegraphics[scale=0.6]{04}
\includegraphics[scale=0.6]{05}
\includegraphics[scale=0.6]{06}
\includegraphics[scale=0.6]{07}
\includegraphics[scale=0.6]{08}
\includegraphics[scale=0.6]{09}
\includegraphics[scale=0.6]{10}
\caption{The modified Toomre's criterion, density plot interms of $\xi$ and
dimensionless raduis $y$ for models summarized in Table \ref{table1}. Each
panel has been titled with the corresponding model. The white era in all
models indicates the stability zone.\label{dp}}
\end{figure*}

• What did you do to center the first one? If you have \centering or similar, just remove that. – Torbjørn T. May 27 '18 at 18:19
• There is no need to post the whole code, but posting the list of your packages and how did you put the figures (minipages, subfigures, centering, etc.) whould be helpful. – gvgramazio May 27 '18 at 18:24
• @ Torbjørn T. : I removed \centering but it is still at center :/ – Perfect Fluid May 27 '18 at 18:25
• The two options that you could try are [...]{\raggedleft \includegraphics{01}}[...] or [...]\includegraphics{01}\hfill[...] – gvgramazio May 27 '18 at 18:50
• See here the difference between \centering command and center environment and why you shouldn't use the latter for figures. See here a more detailed explanation on how you could align figures. Note that in your case do nothing is the same of using \centering. – gvgramazio May 27 '18 at 18:55
