# Beamer and Pause : displaying a picture and in the meantime some text

I wrote the following code :

\begin{columns}
\begin{column}{.48\textwidth}
\begin{block}{Context} \vspace{+0.05cm}
\begin{itemize}
\item Bob \pause
\item Bob2 \pause
\end{itemize}
\end{block}
\end{column}
\hfill%
\begin{column}{.48\textwidth}
\begin{figure}
\centering
\includegraphics[scale=0.18]{myPic.jpg}
\caption{myPic title}
\end{figure}
\end{column}
\end{columns}

I don't manage to display at first Bob AND in the meantime the entire figure myPic (picture+caption). First of all, using pause make the picture not hidden, and the caption is only read at the 3th step. I also tried to use

onslide<1>

for the figure but it didn't worked.

Please also note that I am using :

\setbeamercovered{transparent}

To sum up, here are the steps I would like to obtain if possible.

Step 1: Bob and the entire figure (picture+caption) are displayed

Step 2: Step 1 remains on screen + Bob2 is displayed

For the edit, change <1> to <1-> before bob –  percusse Aug 26 '13 at 13:55
Thanks I sorted this out in checking the command \only that I didn't know ;) –  Header12 Aug 26 '13 at 13:58

You have some problems with your code such as /pause instead of \pause, missing \end{figure} etc. When fixed it looks like the code works properly

\documentclass{beamer}
\usepackage{mwe}
\begin{document}
\begin{frame}{frametitle}
\begin{columns}
\begin{column}{.48\textwidth}
\begin{block}{Context} \vspace{+0.05cm}
\begin{itemize}
\item<1> Bob
\item<2> Bob2
\end{itemize}
\end{block}
\end{column}
\hfill%
\begin{column}{.48\textwidth}
\begin{figure}
\centering
\includegraphics<1>[scale=0.18]{example-image}
\only<1>{\caption{myPic title}}
\end{figure}
\end{column}
\end{columns}
\end{frame}
\end{document}

It's working very fine, I didn't know the fact that you can force the content to be displayed thanks to <number> . I added <1-> or <2-> so that it remains on screen. Thank you for your help! –  Header12 Aug 26 '13 at 13:56
You might also provide a figure-free version with the help of \captionof as there's no point in having a floating environment here. –  Claudio Fiandrino Aug 26 '13 at 13:57
@Header12 My pleasure. The whole overlay specification is based on that. Check the manual for lots of other options –  percusse Aug 26 '13 at 13:57
@ClaudioFiandrino That's what I used to think, but Gonzalo Medina reminded me that beamer changes the meaning of figure and table environments so they are not floats anymore. But still I think captions are redundant in a presentation. –  percusse Aug 26 '13 at 13:58
@ClaudioFiandrino & @ percusse : Do you think I shouldn't use "caption" ? Sorry but I am not a pro in presentation making, as you could realise. What should I use instead then ? –  Header12 Aug 26 '13 at 14:00
