WIP Alert This is a work in progress. Current information is correct but more content may be added in the future.

## Reduce space after image captions

\begin{figure}[!ht]
\includegraphics[width=0.5\textwidth]{path/to/image.png}
\caption{\textit{ImageCaption}}
\vspace{-1.5em}
\end{figure}
This is first


## Center image

Use \centering.

Additionally, note how we configure the image to be as wide as the text with [width=\textwidth].

\begin{figure}[!h]
\centering
\includegraphics[width=\textwidth]{path/to/image.png}

\caption{Lorem impsum}
\label{fig:myimage}
\end{figure}


## Two images side-by-side

\begin{figure}[!h]
\begin{subfigure}{0.5\textwidth}
\centering
\includegraphics[width=0.8\textwidth]{path/to/image1.png}
\caption{Caption for image 1}
\end{subfigure}
\begin{subfigure}{0.5\textwidth}
\centering
\includegraphics[width=0.8\textwidth]{path/to/image2.png}
\caption{Caption for image 2}
\end{subfigure}
\caption{This is goes at the end, after both images}
\end{figure}


## Force image to be exactly where you define it

Use [H] modifier:

\begin{figure}[H]
\includegraphics{path/to/image.png}
\caption{Lorem impsum}
\end{figure}
