Here is my simple code. The figure is 11in x 8.5in. (or in letter size). My purpose is to emerge these pdf figures together and generate pdf with bookmarks. But the first empty page is very annoying. Is there any way to remove it without compromising the figure size?

 \caption{core 0, Av=0}

My output is :

  • So are you attempting to obtain an outcome of a single landscape page that contains an external image with a caption? If the image size if 11in x 8.5in, what should the page/stock size be? Also 11in x 8.5in - exactly the same as the image?

Please check any documentation you have on LaTeX on the meaning of Overfull \hbox.

Most likely your image is too large for one page, so LaTeX moves it to the second page. Try this:


Oh, and you really want to read l2tabu-en.
