How can I put two images next to each other?

Postby Reader » Thu Oct 07, 2021 1:15 pm

In Chapter 6, Inserting images, in the section Arranging several images, I see that there are several packages for placing images next to each other or above each other.

Which one of the mentioned packages shall I choose?

Can you show an simple code example?

I prefer using the subcaption package, since it's the perfect companion to the excellent caption package by the same author.

Here is a quick example:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{graphicx}
\usepackage{subcaption}
\begin{document}
\begin{figure}[ht]
  \subcaptionbox*{First subfigure}[.45\linewidth]{%
    \includegraphics[width=\linewidth]{example-image-a}%
  }%
  \hfill
  \subcaptionbox*{Second subfigure}[.45\linewidth]{%
    \includegraphics[width=\linewidth]{example-image-b}%
  }
  \caption{Two images}
\end{figure}
\end{document}


This gives us:

There are further examples in the LaTeX Cookbook, Chapter 4, Working with Images.
