I'm a Post-Doctoral Fellow in atmospheric remote sensing at the University of Toronto in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. I first came to Stack Exchange for practical reasons: Tex.SE has been of major help when I wrote my licentiate (midterm) thesis. Since then, I have discovered the joy of many websites. As my network profile will show, I'm interested in travel, outdoor, scientific skepticism, and as I work in academia, also in academia and LaTeX.

comment What to do to switch to biblatex?
From the manual: For a quick start guide, browse §§ 1.1, 2.1, 2.2, 2.3, 3.1, 3.3, 3.6, 3.7, 3.11.. That's still almost 90 pages.

comment Is there any opposite of newpage?
Great answer, that must be the reason why we need to run latex/pdflatex 2 or more times as well?

Looks like I was missing the abs option (I think it wasn't there in an earlier revision), but that one's pretty essential. Got it now!

comment Draw a grid for obtaining coordinates to pass to includegraphics' viewport option
I find it hard to reproduce it with my local example here. I might be still doing something wrong. Does it make a difference in what format the picture is?

comment Draw a grid for obtaining coordinates to pass to includegraphics' viewport option
Perhaps I did not phrase my question clearly. The coordinates in this figure do not correspond to the coordinates I need to pass to viewport to get my desired subset of the image; for example, suppose I want to include only the right eye. \includegraphics[viewport=39 60 44 64,clip]{tiger} does not give me the right eye, but a different (much smaller) area.

I'm not sure if I'm understood correctly, I will edit the question.

comment Drawing on multiple images inside the same tikzpicture, how to get the right transformation of coordinates?
@PeterGrill The final output is supposed to be an environment where I can draw on either picture using local coordinates scaled so that (0, 0) is the lower left and (1, 1) is the upper right, as works for a single pictures in the linked question.

comment Drawing on multiple images inside the same tikzpicture, how to get the right transformation of coordinates?
Ah, it looks like it works if I additionally change x={(image2.south east)},... to x={(image1.south east)},.... Does that work because the images are equally sized? They are in my present example. I haven't tested with differently sized pictures.

@percusse That solves it partially; it moves the origin appropriately, but (1, 1) does not yet refer to the upper right (it's still stretched).

@KonradRudolph Any chance your CV without any template turns into a nice successor class for the community to use? ;)
