It's easy to absolute position something using remember picture with TikZ, but it only works with pdfLaTeX.

I can get something working by using negative vskip and hskips (trial and error), but that is pretty annoying.

How can i position something on the top corner on the first slide without remember picture?

Why can't you use pdflatex? –  Caramdir Nov 29 '10 at 22:00
I do, but my supervisor has to keep using lots of old postscript figures with psfrag. –  Mikael Öhman Jan 18 '11 at 18:20
You can use postscript code with pdflatex using package like pst2pdf, pst-pdf or pdftricks. The latter explicitly mentions support for psfrag. –  Martin Scharrer Mar 4 '11 at 12:19

The textpos package has been designed for absolute positioning of text and graphics on the page.

@pluton: There are alternatives to textpos: atbegshi, esopic and everyshi. –  Stefan Kottwitz Jul 12 '11 at 7:15
