I have a standard template for a diary and moved the text to the left with geometry.

\usepackage[left=2cm, right=5cm, top=2.5cm, bottom=2.5cm]{geometry}

Now I want to place the pictures as floats on the right side next to the text. I thought about a two column layout, but then there will be also text in the second column. Ideal would be a solution similar to the SIGCHI Extended Abstract Template, but my LaTeX skills are not good enough to add similar behavior to my document.

Could you tell me what packets are responsible or needed for this to work?

    Probably you could use the marginfigure environment from the sidenotes package.

  • @leandriis yeah something like this would be great. Do you have an idea, how i could apply this?

A very simplified MWE that can serve as a starting point is the following:

\caption{This is a marginfigure with a caption}
