I have disabled the address (%\address{}{}{}), but I cannot remove the blank rows above my Phone number/email address/social media. Can we put the phone number/email/social on the top beside the photo? I'm quite new with LaTeX and would need some help.

enter image description here



\usepackage[scale=0.90, top=0.5cm, bottom=1cm]{geometry} %If you want to change the page margins, you simply need to change this line

Because you gave no complete MWE I used simply an example of an CV included with moderncv class.

The following is simply a bad and dirty hack (because it is not easy to change the complex code producing the title of the CV): I use simply \extrainfo{...} you did not use in the given code snippet and add there as many lines as needed writen in white textcolor like:

\extrainfo{\textcolor{white}{additional information} \\ % <=============
  \textcolor{white}{additional information} \\ % <======================
  \textcolor{white}{additional information} \\
  \textcolor{white}{additional information} \\
  \textcolor{white}{additional information }} % <=======================

That depends on the image you are using. I needed five lines because I used example image example-image-golden-upright from package mwe (must be installed but not called!). Just play with the number of used lines in your case ...

With the following complete TeX code:


\moderncvstyle{classic} % head 1, body 1, foot -


  top=0.5cm, bottom=1cm


\title{Resumé title}
%\address{street and number}{postcode city}{country}
\email{[email protected]}
\extrainfo{\textcolor{white}{additional information} \\ % <=============
  \textcolor{white}{additional information} \\ % <======================
  \textcolor{white}{additional information} \\
  \textcolor{white}{additional information} \\
  \textcolor{white}{additional information }} % <=======================

I get the following resulting pdf (as wished):

As you can see (long red arrow) the additional information is there (needs the marked place), but it is not visible, because it is printed in white color ...
