# two titlegraphics

In my LaTeX document (report) I would like to insert two graphics on top of the title page. Here is a code which already worked in a beamer document:

\titlegraphic{\begin{columns}
\begin{column}{0.5\textwidth}
\begin{figure}%
\includegraphics[width=\columnwidth]{pictures/pic1.jpg}%
\end{figure}
\end{column}
\begin{column}{0.5\textwidth}
\begin{figure}%
\includegraphics[width=\columnwidth]{pictures/pic2.jpg}%
\end{figure}
\end{column}\end{columns}}


In \documentclass{report} 14 errors are returned. The first one is

undefined control sequence \titlegraphic
{\begin{columns}
LaTeX Error: Environment columns undefined.


The beamer class defines the columns and column environments, which are really just like the minipage environment, except that they know all about beamers clever tricks; they are overlay aware.

The other document classes don't know about the columns or column environment unless you tell them. A simple fix would be to load the titlepic package, for example, and then use something like the following code:

% arara: pdflatex
% !arara: indent: {overwrite: yes}
\documentclass{report}
\usepackage{titlepic}
\usepackage{graphicx}
\title{Graphics in report}
\author{me}
\begin{document}

%\titlegraphic{\begin{columns} <!-- old
\titlepic{%\begin{columns} %    <!-- new
\begin{minipage}{0.5\textwidth}
%\begin{figure}%            <!-- new
\includegraphics[width=\textwidth]{example-image-a}%
%\end{figure}               <!-- new
\end{minipage}%
\begin{minipage}{0.5\textwidth}
%\begin{figure}%
\includegraphics[width=\textwidth]{example-image-b}%
%\end{figure}
\end{minipage}
%\end{columns}
}

\maketitle

\end{document}


You'll want to change the images back to the ones you were using before :)

A "quick'n dirty" method without loading additional packages could be the direct use of \includegraphics inside \title{}

\documentclass{report}
\usepackage{graphicx}
\title{
\includegraphics[width=0.3\textwidth]{image-a} \\
Fancy title \\
\includegraphics[width=0.4\textwidth]{image-b}
}
\author{Someone}
\begin{document}

\maketitle

Text

\end{document}


Works also fine together with \minipage{}` if you need to group them side by side.
