I have a poster template and want to have two logos at the top LHS and RHS corners of the frame. So here's the title section:

{\sf\bf Unnecessarily Complicated \\ Research Title} % Poster title
{\vspace{1em} John Smith, James Smith, Jane Smith\\ % Author names
{\smaller j.smith@uni.edu, j.smith2@uni.edu, j.smith3@uni.edu}} % Author email addresses
{\includegraphics[scale=0.15]{logo}} % University/lab logo

And when I add the following line to the beginning of the title section:

{\includegraphics[scale=0.15]{logo}} % University/lab logo

The result is an out-of-boundary mess ! I even put the eyecatcher=true in the \begin{poster}{} section, yet it has no effect on it ! I wonder if you help Thanks

by the way, I am using this template: latextemplates.com/template/baposter-portrait-poster –  Parya Aug 15 '13 at 20:53

1 Answer 1

The \begin{poster} command has a second argument that is the left column and can be used for such a logo. It is the {} just before the comment "TITLE AND AUTHOR NAME" in the sample tex file. Here is an example using that argument in the standard sample document, see the line with the comment %%%Added left logo. I have scaled down the logo's a bit more so that is enough space.
