# LaTeX Beamer Presentation Template Modifications

I was trying to make a customized Beamer Presentation template but I failed to make it complete and facing some difficulties to finalize it. May you help me to make it complete the task..

My coding is given below

    \documentclass[xcolor=x11names,compress]{beamer}
\usepackage{graphicx}
\usepackage{tikz}
%\usetikzlibrary{decorations.fractals}
\useoutertheme[subsection=false,footline=authortitle]{miniframes}
\usefonttheme{serif}
\usepackage{palatino}

\setbeamerfont{title like}{shape=\scshape}
\setbeamerfont{frametitle}{shape=\scshape}

\setbeamercolor*{normal text}{fg=black,bg=white}
\setbeamercolor*{example text}{fg=black}
\setbeamercolor*{structure}{fg=DeepSkyBlue4,bg=white}

\setbeamercolor*{palette tertiary}{fg=black,bg=black!10}
\setbeamercolor*{palette quaternary}{fg=black,bg=black!10}

\newcommand{\<}[1]{\begin{column}{#1}}
\renewcommand{\>}{\end{column}}

\title{Fundamentals of X and Y}
\subtitle{Tutorial at Z 2009, Vienna, Austria}
\author{Gsomething Ksomething}
\institute{Department of Electrical Engineering \\ University of Something Comething}

\newcommand{\makeasection}{%
\subsection{A} % force dots to show up below section navigation
\begin{frame}
\frametitle{Title}
Frame content
\end{frame}
\begin{frame}
\frametitle{Title}
Frame content
\end{frame}
}
\begin{document}

\begin{frame}
\titlepage
\end{frame}

\section{Channels, Coding, and Capacity} \makeasection
\section{Spectral Efficiency} \makeasection
\section{Linear Block Codes} \makeasection
\section{Hard and Soft Decoding} \makeasection
\section{Fiber Capacity Estimate} \makeasection
\subsection{Blocks}
\begin{frame}
\frametitle{Blocks}
\begin{definition}[Greetings]
Hello World
\end{definition}

\begin{theorem}[Fermat's Last Theorem]
$a^n + b^n = c^n, n \leq 2$
\end{theorem}

Errors!

\begin{exampleblock}{Example Block}
An example of something.
\end{exampleblock}

\end{frame}

\end{document}


Now I want to remove the header part from the first page and add two logo file on top and one at the bottom corner (mentioned in the sample image )

The footer should be similar to the the attached file (color may be different) but should include the page information

The title pages (from 2nd page onwards) should have a logo in left portion of the title and the background color should be blue color gradient (explained in the attached figure).

Thank You

Some of the things you want are non-standard in beamer. But you can always take the existing beamer templates as starting point and tweak the according to your needs

\documentclass[xcolor=x11names,compress]{beamer}

\useoutertheme[subsection=false,footline=authortitle]{miniframes}

\usefonttheme{serif}
\usepackage{palatino}

\setbeamerfont{title like}{shape=\scshape}
\setbeamerfont{frametitle}{shape=\scshape}

\setbeamercolor*{normal text}{fg=black,bg=white}
\setbeamercolor*{example text}{fg=black}
\setbeamercolor*{structure}{fg=DeepSkyBlue4,bg=white}

\setbeamercolor*{palette tertiary}{fg=black,bg=black!10}
\setbeamercolor*{palette quaternary}{fg=black,bg=black!10}

• How to make the color ramp from dark to lighter (just the opposite of given one) – ibrahimkbd Jan 8 '16 at 11:12
• Define the colour accordingly:  \colorlet{titleleft}{yellow!10!white} \colorlet{titleright}{blue!50!black} \colorlet{titlemid}{green!60!blue} – samcarter is at topanswers.xyz Jan 8 '16 at 11:16
• Can I put similar type of color format for footer ? Thanks you :) – ibrahimkbd Jan 8 '16 at 11:26
• Yes, you can. You have to modify what is inside \setbeamertemplate{footline}. Have a look at the frametitle to see how \pgfuseshading is used. – samcarter is at topanswers.xyz Jan 8 '16 at 11:34
• @ibrahimkbd see edit. Depending on the image ratio, you might have to adjust a few numbers. – samcarter is at topanswers.xyz Jan 8 '16 at 21:38
