sorry to bother you but I'm quite new in Latex. I would like to put two images in a presentation, better in one slide in this way:


the two images will go one under the other and while I discuss the first image I would like the second to be not totally invisible but opaque.

How this can be done?

You could use setbeamercoverd to alter the coverd options:


  \setbeamercovered{transparent=50}% if here: local (only this frame)

hi bloodworks, thanks a lot! My problem now is to put the images one under the other.I'm not able. I tried in different ways but without success.. – elb Dec 1 '12 at 13:07
have you tried the code? I included a image to show the output. If you have a local problem you should provide a MWE at least. – bloodworks Dec 1 '12 at 14:08
okkk! Thank you! – elb Dec 1 '12 at 14:38
