It is possible to change the figure options for a latex figure in org-mode? Currently I'm using the following to insert a figure in my org document.

#+CAPTION: awesome figure
#+NAME: fig:my-figure

This is exported to

\includegraphics[ ... ]{awesome-figure.png}

This is already quite good, but it tells latex not to try and enforce the [htb] hints. How can I change it so that latex figures are exported as follows?

\inclduegraphics[ ... ]{awesome-figure.png}

The exclamation mark for the figure options is important since it tells latex it should enforce the figure placement.

Modify org-latex-default-figure-position to change the default, or use the following on the specific elements,

 #+attr_latex: :placement [!tbh]
