In a related post; How to connect Beamer blocks by arrows?, I found this image (latex+beamer): enter image description here

I would like to do the exact same thing, but replace the 3 blocks by 3 figures. The figures may have different sizes. Any suggestions how I could do that?

  • Would TikZ help? I'm not sure what you mean by "figures" but if they're diagrams, TikZ is good at that anyway; if they're images, you can include them through TikZ and if it's text/tables, you can make a TikZ figure with three nodes each containing a minipage. – Bristol Jul 4 '13 at 8:59
  • You might be able to adapt this example based on TikZ (from TeXample.net) – John Hammersley Jul 4 '13 at 9:44
  • I think you might also find useful Anchors badly positioned (second part of the answer). – Claudio Fiandrino Jul 4 '13 at 9:58

No tikz involved here. However, you might be able to find better arrow graphics than those I pulled by scaling up stuff from he MnSymbol package. Where I put my \rules, you can substitute an \includegraphics.

\documentclass{beamer}
\usepackage{MnSymbol}
\usepackage{stackengine}
\centering
\def\figA{\rule{1in}{1in}}
\def\figB{\rule{1.3in}{1in}}
\def\figC{\rule{1.2in}{0.8in}}
\def\arrowA{\scalebox{6}{$\lcurvearrowright$}}
\def\arrowB{\scalebox{6}{$\lcurvearrowsw$}}
\def\arrowC{\scalebox{6}{$\lcurvearrownw$}}
\begin{document}
\stackon[-.05in]{\hspace{.3in}\figA\hspace{.5in}\figB}{\arrowA}\\
\hspace{.2in}\arrowC\belowbaseline[-.3in]{\figC}\arrowB
\end{document}
