To make a figure in latex is simpler than it looks and just requires a few commands. Use the graphicx package with the following command in the preamble usepackagegraphicx yes, there are others but this is the best and most widely used. By using latex to author apa manuscripts, researchers can address many problems associated with formatting their results into tables and figures. For example, anova tables can be readily generated using the xtable package in r, and graphs from ggplot2 can be rendered within the manuscript using sweave (see wikipedia ). I have a two column document (using multicol) and want to insert figures so that they do not span columns. I have searched around and the only thing i can find says that only figure is supported which spans the whole page (both columns). After that you can use the environment wrapfig, it takes two parameters that are passed inside braces the alignement that can be l, r, c, i or o this letters stand for left, right, centre, inner and outer (the last two intended for two-sided documents). The second parameter is the width of the figure, in the example is 0.
