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 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? ;)

comment \includepdfmerge starting new documents on right side page
@AndrewSwann That's what I ended up doing in practice (it was small enough to do by hand), question is if I can do that in LaTeX by passing appropriate commands.
