### How to place a photo where I want (CV purpose)

Hi,

I've just started to use latex with the purpose of writing in a good way my Curriculum Vitae but I've already found problems when I try to place my photo in the top-right corner of the paper. I've searched anywhere but I didn't find anything..could someone gently help me?
Thank you so much.

P.S. plus, I'd like to add next to the photo the personal informations like phone number, address etc.

Welcome to the forum!

It depends in the CV class or template you are using. Which one is it?

Generally, you could use `fancyhdr` or `scrlayer-scrpage` for that. Or, for totally independent absolute positioning on a page, `textpos` or `eso-pic` or `atbegshi` or `evershi` or TikZ.

Thank you so much Stefan!
Now I'm using moderncv as class because is the one that I've seen the most. I'll take a look to what you've written, in any case it's better to continue to reply here or what?
Thank you again,

Lorenzo

Hi Lorenzo!

As it is moderncv, which of the styles is it? Basically you can simply insert `\includegraphics` as part of the title text, or as part of the title macro of the chosen style of moderncv.

Hi,

sorry for the delay but I was dealing with another thing. Anyway \includegraphics was the function I've started with but I didn't manage to put the photo where I wanted.
However I'm taking a look to fancyhdr package you suggested to me and I find it quite useful (thank you so much for that ). If I have trouble I will write down here.
Thank you again for your help, can I rate in any way your useful comment?
