# Position of footnotemark after includegraphics

I know a lot of questions have been asked about footnotes in captions and others. I am currently working on a beamer presentation where such mechanism is not always necessary, on the contrary, \footnotes might (I insist on the might) be more relevant there.

I tried to add a \footnote just after an \includegraphics call but the footnote number is placed at the bottom of the picture, which feels kind of weird. I'd prefer the mark to be placed near the top right corner.

It probably is easy to solve, but when searching the internet, I always fall back to the \footnote with \caption related questions.

Here is an example

\documentclass{beamer}
\usepackage{graphicx}
\begin{document}
\begin{frame}
\includegraphics{example-image-a}\footnote{A footnote for an image without figure}
\end{frame}
\end{document}


\documentclass{beamer}
\usepackage{graphicx}
\begin{document}
\begin{frame}
\raisebox{-\dimexpr\height-\baselineskip}{\includegraphics{example-image-a}}\footnote{A footnote for an image without figure}
\end{frame}
\end{document}


• Thanks for the quick answer ! Do you know what makes it different between normal text and the \includegraphics ? – BambOo Apr 13 '20 at 17:15
• Your graphic is much higher than normal text. Try aaa{\Huge A}\footnote{A} and you will see the same effect. – Ulrike Fischer Apr 13 '20 at 17:17
• So you mean that the default \footnote placement is font size independent? Isn't that weird ? I though it would have been placed with respect to the previous text, at some percentage of the height. – BambOo Apr 13 '20 at 17:21
• Sure, but the "height" is the font size and a graphic doesn't change this. {\Huge A} does change the fontsize, but after the group the fontsize is smaller again and footnote use this. If you would put the footnote inside the group you would get some different. – Ulrike Fischer Apr 13 '20 at 17:33
• Ok, thanks for the explainations. – BambOo Apr 13 '20 at 17:34
