# LaTeX figures: The figure Environment

Hello, in the last post I talked about the includegraphics command.

But, did you notice? it just imports images but you can not change its location or add a caption, and it is so important when you are talking about images because you can add more details to your image.

In this post, I am going to talk about that, about the figure environment

# The figure Environment

Do you remember the table environment? If not you can check it here, the figure environment is so similar to this environment.

\begin{figure}[position]
align
\includegraphics[modifiers]{yourImage.ext}
\caption{yourCaption}
\end{figure}


## position options

• h to put the image here, it is, at the current position of your cursor in the code
• b to put the image at the bottom of the current page
• t to put the image at the top of the current page
• ! indicates ignore the rules and put the image here

## align options

• \centering align the image to the center
• \raggedleft align the image to the left
• \raggedright align the image to the right

## modifiers and image options

You can change the details in this post, in the Importing images section

## caption

Here you can put the caption of the image

Thanks, this is all for today, enjoy :)

## Git Concepts I Wish I Knew Years Ago

The most used technology by developers is not Javascript.

It's not Python or HTML.

It hardly even gets mentioned in interviews or listed as a pre-requisite for jobs.

I'm talking about Git and version control of course.
