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?

  • There is always \raisebox. It can adjust the baseline, height and depth independently. For horizontal positioning, \rlap and \llap can prove useful. Jun 13, 2019 at 15:17

A possibility is to use the tikz package:

\begin{tikzpicture}[remember picture,overlay]
    \node [xshift=0cm,yshift=0cm] at (current page.center){\includegraphics[width=5cm]{example-image-a}};

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