# Left column with a figure to the right (Beamer)

I can't understand how to make a column to the left with a figure to the right:

Here is one example of what I did:

 \documentclass{beamer}
...
\begin{frame}\frametitle{Title}
\begin{columns}
\begin{column}{\textwidth}
Composition:
\begin{itemize}
\item first item
\end{itemize}
\end{column}
\end{columns}

\begin{figure}
\includegraphics[scale=0.25]{fig}
\caption{}
\end{figure}
\end{frame}


The figure compares in the middle, how flush it to the right?

This is a MWE that puts a box in the right column. I have kept the \includegraphics where it should be. In your code you started the columns environment but didi not define a second column where you could put your figure.

\documentclass{beamer}
\usepackage{graphicx}
\setlength{\unitlength}{1cm}
\begin{document}
\begin{frame}\frametitle{Title}

\begin{columns}
\begin{column}{.49\textwidth}
Composition:
\begin{itemize}
\item first item
\end{itemize}
\end{column}

\begin{column}{.49\textwidth}
\begin{picture}(2,2)
\put(0,0){\dashbox{0.2}(2,2)}
\end{picture}
%\includegraphics[\textwidth]{fig}
\end{column}
\end{columns}

\end{frame}
\end{document}


You can scale the columns widths to suit your needs.
