If I try to include something via \includegraphics, I will sometimes get a blank space that goes away if I reduce the scale of the figure.

How can I avoid that?

    the usual way is to put the \includegraphics in a figure enviornment, the purpose of figure is to allow the image to be moved to help avoid white space at page breaks. Jun 22, 2019 at 15:10
  • @DavidCarlisle If I do that, the image fits on the page for a much smaller scale than without

    with no example posted it really is impossible to say anything, Try to make a small but complete example that shows the problem (you can use example-image as the image Jun 22, 2019 at 15:18

    it really is impossible to say unless you make an example, perhaps you want the [htp] option to the figure. also the \noindent looks wrong Jun 22, 2019 at 15:22
