Position each image precisely

Don’t let the images positions be determined by the layout.

Other than, for example, in a sales brochure, in technical documentation images aren’t artwork but a core element of the information. This information needs to be included at the exact right position.

Add an image exactly where it’s needed. This makes clear where the image belongs, and it enables the users to read the document continuously without needing to search for corresponding images.

Don’t put an image away to another page or to another place only because there is more space.
