# Why to waste space above my picture?

by gsamaras   Last Updated September 11, 2019 23:23 PM

Here is my CV, where I have my picture on the "top" right corner. But it's not on top, which OK might be too much, but I would like to be more on top, or to re-configure some things to gain that wasted space above the picture.

This is the code of the picture:

\hfill {\em \includegraphics[width=0.16\textwidth]{sam}}


and the result is this:

Is there anything to force it move closer to the top?

I am also using res.cls, but I didn't find something there, with my inexperienced eyes, that could help. I have it here.

Try \vspace*{} with a negative number as argument. See also this question.

You can make a tikzpicture and place the figure "on top" of your document as so:

\documentclass{report}
\usepackage{tikz}

\begin{document}
\begin{tikzpicture}[remember picture,overlay]
\node at (current page.north)[anchor=north,inner sep=50pt,xshift = 4cm,
yshift = 0cm]{
\includegraphics[height=1cm]{resumephoto}
};
\end{tikzpicture}
\end{document}


Just fiddle around with the xshift and yshift to get it in the right position.
