### a0poster - how to position figures and text

Dear all,

Please excuse my errors because I am new to this forum and struggling badly. Please could you help me to position figures within boxed areas, so that I can design an a0 poster? I need to be able to put captions under the figures and keep the regions of text in the right place and I am not able to see how to do this anywhere. I am not conerned about frames of boxes, but I would like to be able to write in a kind of textbox, preferably with a coloured background, to separate the regions of text.

Please find attached my image files which I have included in the a0poster, the code for which I have copied in below. I would like to be able to put a few boxes around but I don't k=mind images floating within, say, a pink region. I have tried to use wrapfigures, so that I could write about each figure. When I tried this, everything stretched into the wrong place and overlapped. I would be most grateful for your help, please. I have really spent a long time trying to use LaTeX for this and I am really not getting anywhere.

Welcome and sorry for the late reply. You can always use the pictures from the nwe package. We don't Need to see your actual Images.

I cannot test your example right now, but i guess using figure Environments isn't really the way to go- wrapfigure never seems to be a good idea.
Maybe it is because i couldn't test, but i don't really understand the current problem. Did you get anywhere in the meantime?
The smart way: Calm down and take a deep breath, read posts and provided links attentively, try to understand and ask if necessary.
