# Figure next to the \maketitle

I tried a picture next to the \maketitle like in this question. But I make bigger the size of picture and the title is hidden behind the picture. What should I edit? Next problem is that I have only black rectangle instead of picture. How to add a picture? I thought that \vspace{0pt}\includegraphics[width=5.503cm,height=4.654cm]{m.png} last braces is a name of picture. Thank you

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[left=2cm,right=2cm,top=2cm,bottom=2cm]{geometry}
\newcommand{\mytitle}[1]{\LARGE \textbf{#1}\par}
\newcommand{\mysubtitle}[1]{\large\textbf{#1}\par}
\newcommand{\mydate}[1]{\small #1\par}
\usepackage[demo]{graphicx}

\begin{document}

\noindent%
\begin{minipage}[t]{.3\textwidth}
\vspace{0pt}\includegraphics[width=5.503cm,height=4.654cm]{m.png}
\end{minipage}%
\begin{minipage}[t]{.7\textwidth}
\vspace{20pt}
\mytitle{Title}
\mydate{\today}
\end{minipage}

\end{document}


• the black rectangle is because you have \usepackage[demo]{graphicx} remove demo, for the rest remove [width=5.503cm,height=4.654cm (which would distort the image) just specify [width=\linewidth] so the image scales to fit. – David Carlisle Apr 13 at 16:26
• Thank you and how to set a space between figure and title? Or how to get figure to the right side of the page? – Lukáš Altman Apr 13 at 16:39
• you have made two minipage with no space between them adding up to textwidth, if you want a space change the width from .3\textwidth to (say) .25\textwidth and change \end{minipage}% to \end{minipage}\hfill to put hfill space betwween the minipages – David Carlisle Apr 13 at 16:42
• I added a picture to my question, do we mean the same space? – Lukáš Altman Apr 13 at 16:46
• yes if you want a gap you need to make one of the minpage smaller, I suggested reducing the image, you could of course reduce the size of the second minipage with the title text instead. – David Carlisle Apr 13 at 17:02

I noted the changes in code comments below

\documentclass{article}

\newcommand{\mysubtitle}[1]{\large\textbf{#1}\par}
\newcommand{\mydate}[1]{\small #1\par}
