# Set image width globally for LaTeX export

I write my research notes in org-mode, and I'd like to avoid writing #+ATTR_LaTeX: :width 5cm :placement [!htpb] right before all of my figures, to save some time. A possible solution might be to make changes to my .emacs file. I'm just not sure what to add.

I have spent quite some time searching for a solution to this, but so far I haven't found one.

Any suggestion will be greatly appreciated.

(setq org-latex-image-default-width "5cm")
