# [Tex/LaTex] Landscape mode causes a blankpage

landscapepage-breaking

I'm using this code for showing an image in landscape mode:

\begin{landscape}

\begin{figure}[H]
\centering
\includegraphics[width=\hsize]{./images/SelectDVA.png}
\caption{DVA part of the Use Case \ref{sec:use_case_2}.}
\end{figure}

\end{landscape}


This causes the output to have a blank page immediately after the rotated page containing the image.

It seems that using landscape causes a page break, is it true?

How can I prevent this behaviour?

landscape will not produce blank pages but cause a page break where it is introduced. This will result in undesired white space in the previous page. This can be avoided by using the afterpage package:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{lipsum}
\usepackage{graphicx}
\usepackage{afterpage}
\usepackage{lscape}
\begin{document}
\lipsum[1-2]
\afterpage{
\begin{landscape}

\begin{figure}[H]
\centering
\includegraphics[width=\hsize]{example-image-a}
\caption{DVA part of the Use Case \ref{sec:use_case_2}.}
\end{figure}

\end{landscape}
}
\lipsum[3-8]

\end{document}


If you use pdflscape instead of lscape package,
