### Subfigure positions

Hi Everybody,

I need some help with positioning figures using subfigure. I have two figures, Fig1 and Fig2, I want them in the same {figure} environment, appearing next to each other. The problem is that Fig2 is considerably smaller along the vertical direction, and hence it is shifted upwards with respect to Fig1. It looks incredibly clumsy. I would like to match the bottom of the two figures, so the captions are aligned.

How can I do that?

Welcome, can you show us the code to reproduce your actual case?
Package subfigure is deprecated for more than a decade now. These days, people would use the subcaption package.
The smart way: Calm down and take a deep breath, read posts and provided links attentively, try to understand and ask if necessary.

Here is the code:
\begin{figure}\begin{subfigure}{0.5\textwidth}	\centering	\includegraphics[scale=0.5]{Fig1.pdf}	\caption{qwert}	\label{fig:Fig1}\end{subfigure}\begin{subfigure}{0.5\textwidth}	\centering	\includegraphics[scale=0.5]{Fig2.pdf}	\caption{asdfg}	\label{fig:Fig2}\end{subfigure}\end{figure}

I am sorry, I am quite new to LaTeX, this is the first time I try do do this. I was not aware that subfigure is deprecated. I would gladly switch to the recommended package.

Your code snippet looks to me like you're already using the right package (subcaption).
What you're looking for is called \subcaptionbox, if I understand you correctly.
See in texdoc subcaption' the description to \subcaptionbox`---there's a nice example with a cat and an elephant
