I am trying to create an Appendix for my experiment figures, and the following is the my code

\section{}\label{sec:figures}

\begin{figure*}[h]
    \begin{minipage}{0.75\textwidth}  
        ...
    \end{minipage}      
\end{figure*}

\begin{figure*}[h]
    \begin{minipage}{0.75\textwidth}  
        ...
    \end{minipage}      
\end{figure*}

\begin{figure*}[h]
    \begin{minipage}{0.75\textwidth}  
        ...
    \end{minipage}      
\end{figure*}

\begin{figure*}[h]
    \begin{minipage}{0.75\textwidth}  
        ...
    \end{minipage}      
\end{figure*}

There is unintentional blank page inserted between the section title and the figures like the following.

enter image description here

How can I make latex not do this unintentional page break? Thanks.

Update: I have tried using the float package with

\begin{figure}[H]
    \begin{minipage}{0.75\textwidth}  
        ...
    \end{minipage}      
\end{figure}

The problem with this is that I am using a two-column format and this made the picture overlay on each other.

    It seems like you want to place the images in-place, rather than have them float. For that, consider adding the float package to your preamble and use \begin{figure}[H]...\end{figure} instead of \begin{figure*}...\end{figure*}. Regardless, the principle of this question is solved by How to influence the position of float environments like figure and table in LaTeX? – Werner Oct 17 at 3:09

  • So that's why you're using figure*, to get the picture to span two columns. figure* is known to place content at the top of the following page. I think you should be more clear in your description of what you have and what you want. Perhaps, provide the community with a minimal working example (MWE) that we can copy-and-paste-and-compile and see exactly what you have. It should start with \documentclass and end with \end{document} and use packages like lipsum for text and example-image for inclusion of images. Can you do that? – Werner Oct 17 at 21:05
