Please consider this resume template: https://da.overleaf.com/articles/rishi-shahs-resume/vgxvkmxktyxn. I want to keep this template but simply make two changes:

  • Move the headline (name, address, phone, mail) to the right
  • and then add a photo the left before the first paragraph.

How Can do that while using this template?

I Can't see in the code then the headline placement is decided. Here is the entire code from the link:

Well, that template is very outdated and should better not used any longer ...

Nevertheless, in your case it is the best to create a new header and do not use the original commands for name, address etc.

The new header looks like:

% Header with image left
\includegraphics[width=2cm]{example-image-golden-upright}
\hfil  
\begin{minipage}[b]{.6\textwidth}
    {\huge\bfseries A. B \par}
    Address here \par
    555\,123\,987
\end{minipage}

and use it direct after \begin{document}. Please see the following complete MWE

\documentclass{resume}

\usepackage[left=0.5in,top=0.5in,right=0.5in,bottom=0.5in]{geometry} 
\usepackage{graphicx}

%\name{\textbf{A. B}} % <============================= not longer needed!
%\address{Address: \emph{Address here}} % <=========== not longer needed!


\begin{document}

% Header with image left
\includegraphics[width=2cm]{example-image-golden-upright}
\hfil  
\begin{minipage}[b]{.6\textwidth}
    {\huge\bfseries A. B \par}
    Address here \par
    555\,123\,987
\end{minipage}

\begin{rSection}{Profile}
This is my profile.
\end{rSection}

\end{document}

and its result:

resulting cv

  • Well not as "pretty" as I wanted it to be, but this is probably the best I can do with this template. Thanks! Solved my problem ! – k.dkhk Sep 12 '19 at 9:25
  • How will you align so the top of the text and picture is at the same place? – k.dkhk Sep 12 '19 at 9:58
  • Well, the above code was already a bad hack, I would simply suggest to use a better template or create the CV by your own ...For example look for class moderncv, style banking; that looks simular to resume.cls and there are already answers on this site how to add the image there ... – Mensch Sep 12 '19 at 15:00
