# Beamer: How text wrapping around a graphic right aligned?

I want to include a graphic in beamer presentation with right alignment and this graphic should be wrapping by text. I tried three packages but non of them works correct (minimal example below).

picins: the text superimposed on the graphic.

wrapfig: the graphic is inserted in principle to a new page following

floatflt: the graphic is moved to the area where the frametitle is

Another possibility to achieve this is to put the graphic into a column, but then it's not wrapping by text.

Is there anyone who knows how I can solve this?

\documentclass[11pt,t,handout]{beamer}

\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage{lmodern}
\usepackage[ngerman]{babel}
\usepackage{graphicx}
\usepackage{amsmath,amssymb}

\usepackage{picins}
\usepackage{wrapfig}
\usepackage{floatflt}

If you're still interested in an automate solution, please see my answer here: tex.stackexchange.com/a/56228/3954 . –  Gonzalo Medina May 17 '12 at 13:00
@Gonzalo Medina: Thanks for the answer. The issue described here is different, because the text consists in itemize environment. And what I know now -- and it's a question to this issue in general -- in LaTeX it's impossible that text in itemize environment wrapping around something like a picture. –  André May 19 '12 at 9:19

One basic idea could be use a minipage and divide it in two columns: on the right put the image and on the left the text. This method is not perfect, but gives you at least something similar to a wrapped figure.

Here is my code with a test image:

\documentclass[11pt,t,handout]{beamer}

\usepackage{graphicx}
\usetheme{EastLansing}
\author{Max Mustermann}

\begin{document}
\begin{frame}
\frametitle{Folientitel}

\begin{minipage}[0.2\textheight]{\textwidth}
\begin{columns}[T]
\begin{column}{0.8\textwidth}
\begin{itemize}[<+->]
\item Punkt 1 = text blah blah foo bar, text blah blah foo bar, text blah blah foo bar
\item Punkt 2= text blah blah foo bar, text blah blah foo bar, text blah blah foo bar
\item Punkt 3= text blah blah foo bar, text blah blah foo bar, text blah blah foo bar
\end{itemize}
\end{column}
\begin{column}{0.2\textwidth}
\includegraphics[width=2.5cm]{logopolito}
\end{column}
\end{columns}
\end{minipage}

\begin{itemize}[<+->]
\item Punkt 1 = text blah blah foo bar, text blah blah foo bar, text blah blah foo bar
\item Punkt 2= text blah blah foo bar, text blah blah foo bar, text blah blah foo bar
\item Punkt 3= text blah blah foo bar, text blah blah foo bar, text blah blah foo bar
\end{itemize}
\end{frame}
\end{document}

which gives you as result:

Grazie! It's a possibility, but not what I'm searching for. Because it depends on how large (height) the graphic is and so it's not automatable -- and this is normally the great advantage of LaTeX. Maybe, there is another solution? –  André May 2 '12 at 16:21
Is there a way to get the bullet points to line up properly without having to manually adjust the column width parameters or \hspace? –  xvtk Oct 24 '13 at 13:54
I think you have to play with the column parameters, but this really depends on your real needs and consequently on how the frame should have to be built. –  Claudio Fiandrino Oct 24 '13 at 13:58

If someone is looking for another way to hack around this problem, I found a method using negative space. This does not solve the wrapping problem so if the image overlaps the text, you have to manually insert newlines. But it's a quick and ugly way to insert the image where you want.

\begin{columns}[T]
\column{0.99\textwidth}
\begin{itemize}
\item blah
\item blah
\item blah
\end{itemize}

\column{0.01\textwidth}
\hspace*{-2cm}
\includegraphics[width=2cm]{image}
\end{columns}

For proper alignment of the items in the list you can set the items that require wrapping inside a \parbox of pre-specified width. This allows you to put all the items in the same list:

\documentclass[11pt,t]{beamer}% http://ctan.org/pkg/beamer
\let\Tiny\tiny% http://tex.stackexchange.com/q/58087/5764
\usetheme{EastLansing}
\author{Max Mustermann}

\newcommand{\lenitem}[2][.7\linewidth]{\parbox[t]{#1}{\strut #2\strut}}
\begin{document}
\begin{frame}
\frametitle{Folientitel}

\mbox{}\hfill\raisebox{-\height}[0pt][0pt]{\includegraphics[width=.25\linewidth]{example-image-a}}
\vspace*{-\baselineskip}

\begin{itemize}[<+->]
\item \lenitem{Punkt 1: text blah blah foo bar, text blah blah foo bar, text blah blah foo bar}
\item \lenitem{Punkt 2: text blah blah foo bar, text blah blah foo bar, text blah blah foo bar}
\item \lenitem{Punkt 3: text blah blah foo bar, text blah blah foo bar, text blah blah foo bar}
\item Punkt 1: text blah blah foo bar, text blah blah foo bar, text blah blah foo bar
\item Punkt 2: text blah blah foo bar, text blah blah foo bar, text blah blah foo bar
\item Punkt 3: text blah blah foo bar, text blah blah foo bar, text blah blah foo bar
\end{itemize}
\end{frame}
\end{document}

Remember that these are slides that don't contain a large amount of text, so manual interference/setting is okay at times (at least in my opinion).
