I would like to put a figure in the right part of a slide and text in the left part, in order to explain the figure.

Then i would like to put another block at the bottom of the slide.

I'm using Beamer.

How can I move blocks and figures in a single slide?

Wrap each side in a minipage. ie, \begin{minipage}{0.45\linewidth} <content on left> \end{minipage}\begin{minipage}{0.45\linewidth} <picture on right> \end{minipage}. – Peter Grill Jul 14 '12 at 23:09

You can use the columns environment as follows:

\usepackage{mwe} %For dummy image

\author{The author}
\title{The title}

\begin{frame}{Frame title}{Frame subtitle}
