    i'm currently writing a document using TexShop and i basically need a table with an image in the left coloumn and text in the corresponding right, whenever i typeset the document the text alligns to the bottom (under the image) of the cell, i have a feeling its something to do with the wrapping on the image, i.e. it wont let any text lay next to it

    any ideas of how to unwrap the image?

    cheers

    lol.

    did you ever get the image to work? If not, maybe you could use the \put command (lets you specify the position of an object by xy coordinates?)

    Syntax is

    \put(x,y){Written text}

    Or other option - put the text as part of the image in another program, so you can place it exactly where you want, then import the image in to texshop?

    EDIT this is better

    Here (x, y) is the position of the bottom left corner of the box. The \makebox command draws an invisible box. The \framebox command draws a box surrounded by a frame. The \dashbox{d} command draws a box with a frame broken into dashes of length d; the dashed box looks best when w and h are integral multiples of d. A box can have zero size; then (x, y) is the position of the center of the text:
    \put(x,y){\makebox(0,0){Text in the box}}

    No problem - I share your pain, wasted many many hours messing with figures in LaTeX!
