# move block and figures arbitrarily

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?

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

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:

\documentclass{beamer}
\usepackage{mwe} %For dummy image

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

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

\begin{columns}
\begin{column}{0.3\textwidth}
The Explanation
\end{column}
\begin{column}{0.7\textwidth}\centering
\includegraphics[width=.6\linewidth]{example-image-a}
\end{column}
\end{columns}

\vspace{1cm}

\begin{block}{title}
content
\end{block}
\end{frame}

\end{document}
