Some journal publications require you to put author biography for each author with their pictures. For this I found the _picins _package. To install this package you can run the following commands

sudo mkdir /usr/share/texmf/tex/latex/picins
sudo wget -O /usr/share/texmf/tex/latex/picins/picins.sty http://ctan.imsc.res.in/macros/latex209/contrib/picins/picins.sty http://mirrors.ctan.org/macros/latex209/contrib/picins/picins.sty
sudo /usr/bin/texconfig rehash
So, then you can use the following latex code for biography of an author:
\parpic{\includegraphics[width=1in,clip,keepaspectratio]{figures/photo.eps}}
