I am trying to include two following pictures side-by-side into beamer:

enter image description hereenter image description here

but usually the second is placed lower than the first one. It depends on their sizes:

  • if I want them to be of a similarly size then their horizontal axes are not the same.

  • if I make their horizontal axes to be the same, then the second picture has to bigger than the first one.

I have used \includegraphics, \subfigure, \mbox and similar commands, but it somehow does not have any effect.

I have tried also this: Move a figure a bit right

Maybe the reason is that the pictures have different resolutions?

Thanks for advice.

Edit: The first image may cause the problems: opening it in "Eye of GNOME 2.30.0" one gets this view: enter image description here

Have you tried to use \includegraphics inside a tabular environement? EDIT: What about this: \begin{frame} \frametitle{Title} \begin{minipage}[c]{\textwidth} \begin{minipage}[c]{0.49\textwidth} \begin{center} \includegraphics[width=\textwidth]{fig1}\\ Caption1 \end{center} \end{minipage} \begin{minipage}[c]{0.49\textwidth} \begin{center} \includegraphics[width=\textwidth]{fig2}\\ Caption 2 \end{center} \end{minipage} \end{minipage} \end{frame} – miladydesummer Sep 20 '12 at 13:42
Yes, and the problem is still the same:( – Miroslav Korbelar Sep 20 '12 at 14:22
The standard answer should be to say \raisebox{-.5\height}{\includegraphics[...]{...}}; the adjustbox package provides more tools. – egreg Sep 20 '12 at 15:32
@egreg Thank you, this works well. It is the simplest solution. – Miroslav Korbelar Sep 27 '12 at 10:54

A (maybe too) simplistic solution is to say


The package adjustbox provides many other tools.

There are of course several approaches here. I'd use xcoffins

  \SetHorizontalCoffin{\CoffinA}{\includegraphics[scale = 0.4]{iDd8t}}%
  \SetHorizontalCoffin{\CoffinB}{\includegraphics[scale = 0.5]{WtVfE}}%

which yields

enter image description here

If you want to do a manual shift, you just need to use a line of the form

\JoinCoffins{\CoffinA}[vc,r]{\CoffinB}[vc,l](0 pt, 0pt)

where the two dimensions are the horizontal and vertical shift of the second image, respectively.

I've used the images as-uploaded, by the way. – Joseph Wright Sep 20 '12 at 15:33
