What is the difference (if any) between immediately before, right before and just before ?

What is the most suitable one to use in this sentence:

The paragraph ..... before the image.

  • This involves the separate meanings of immediately, right and just in context. So it will be context dependent. Your example is referring to position, so I would just use "The paragraph above the image." – user3169 Sep 18 '16 at 16:48

    I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because none of the proposed options are appropriate for the suggested sentence. – JavaLatte Sep 18 '16 at 18:10

The sentence should be: "The paragraph preceding the image".

In general, "immediately before", "right before" and "just before" have similar meanings.
