The LaTeX picins package

Version: 5.5 - Scientific WorkPlace & Scientific Word

The picins package provides precise control over the placement of inline graphics. It also provides dashed, solid, and shadow frames around the graphics, and allows space for a caption. Tables aren't supported. The placement of graphics is controlled with commands in TeX fields in the body of your document. The commands generally have the format


where x, y, and z indicate the position on the page, the width, and the height of the graphic image; and graphic is the full path name for the graphics file. Additional command elements are available to specify the position of the caption and the kind and size of frame. For details, open the package documentation your default viewer for text files.

The picins package is installed in the TCITeX/TeX/latex209/contrib/picins directory.

You can also wrap text around graphics with the wrapfig package.
