# How to move includegraphics

Exactly this question : How to shift graphics/adjust placement of figure with \includegraphics

but only half the answer is given, since using \hspace* works as intended, i.e. I can move my includegraphics wherever I want left or right. The problem is, using \vspace* in the same manner results in shifting the whole frame up and down, and not only my includegraphics.

So my question is : how to move includegraphics figures?

• Please provide a minimum working example to show your problem. – Jeffrey J Weimer Jun 13 '19 at 12:59
• There is always \raisebox. It can adjust the baseline, height and depth independently. For horizontal positioning, \rlap and \llap can prove useful. – John Kormylo Jun 13 '19 at 15:17

A possibility is to use the tikz package:

\documentclass[a4]{article}
\usepackage{tikz}
\usepackage{graphicx}
\begin{document}
\begin{figure}
\begin{tikzpicture}[remember picture,overlay]
\node [xshift=0cm,yshift=0cm] at (current page.center){\includegraphics[width=5cm]{example-image-a}};
\end{tikzpicture}
\end{figure}
\end{document}


You can change the position with [xshift=0cm,yshift=0cm]
