# how to fit two figures into one column

Ho, my code is this and it is placing figures in center using ieee 2-column format. I want to fit these figures in one column.

 \documentclass[conference]{IEEEtran}
\usepackage{lipsum}
\usepackage{graphicx}
\usepackage{floatrow}

\begin{document}

\section{First section}
\lipsum[1-2]

\section{Second section}
\lipsum[3]
\begin{figure*}

\begin{floatrow}
\ffigbox[\FBwidth]{\caption{bbbbbbbbb} }{\includegraphics[scale=0.4]{example-image}}

\ffigbox[\FBwidth]{\caption{vvvvvvvvvvv}}{\includegraphics[scale=0.4]{example-image}}

\end{floatrow}
\end{figure*}
\lipsum[4]

\section{Last section}
\lipsum[5-10]

\end{document}


the two figures are shown in image. I want them in red circle area in one column

• just use the the same table I gave you in the previous question/ answer -- instead of text use \includegraphics Aug 18, 2021 at 4:15
• sorry didnt understand what you mean as i am already using \includegraphics[scale=0.4]{example-image}} Aug 18, 2021 at 4:27

(updated my answer after OP clarified that the graphs should be placed side by side, rather than one above the other)

You may be overthinking things. Just use a figure rather than a figure* environment, don't employ the machinery of the floatrow package, encase the graphs and their \caption statements in minipage environments of width 0.475\columnwith, and replace [scale=0.4] with [width=\linewidth].

\begin{minipage}[t]{0.475\columnwidth}
\includegraphics[width=\linewidth]{example-image-a}
\caption{bbbbbbbbb}
\end{minipage}\hfill % maximize horizontal separation
\begin{minipage}[t]{0.475\columnwidth}
\includegraphics[width=\linewidth]{example-image-b}
\caption{vvvvvvvvvvv}
\end{minipage}
