I have included .png and .pdf files in my beamer presentation. When I compile the document I can't see them. The documentation I read claim that both .png and .pdf should are readable by beamer. How can I use the figures then?

I'm using pdflatex on arch-linux machine. The files are stored on a remote machine and I access them via sshfs.

This question is unlikely to help any future visitors; it is only relevant to a small geographic area, a specific moment in time, or an extraordinarily narrow situation that is not generally applicable to the worldwide audience of the internet.

A lot of things can go wrong, beamer should not be responsible for this going wrong. Try and see if the problem occurs for a normal document with the same pictures. If it does, correct your question and supply us a minimal working example. – zeroth Feb 16 '12 at 12:28
You are right. The figure is too large. Changing the figure size fixed this. – Yotam Feb 16 '12 at 12:57
Thanks for the prompt response. If you find the answer to this question you can also write-up answer and accept it. Such that it doesn't show up in the unanswered list anymore. – percusse Feb 16 '12 at 13:26
beamer itself is "just" a LaTeX class. LaTeX itself accepts PNG, JPG and PDF images if the newer compilers like pdflatex, lualatex or xelatex are used but not by the older latex (DVI mode). Always check the log file for some errors or warnings. Using sshfs doesn't sound great but shouldn't be an issue in general. – Martin Scharrer Feb 16 '12 at 13:35
@percusse: In this case, zeroth has provided an answer and I have fixed the problem. Writing an answer and accepting it fills like cheating – Yotam Feb 16 '12 at 14:47
