everyone. So, I was just wondering, does anyone know how to create a slide like this using Latex, maybe beamer presentation? Or maybe it was created using PowerPoint?

EDIT: I have used beamer earlier and I just do not know how to create a slide like this. More specifically, the red part and the overall layout? What I have used about beamer is the simple and classic one. Like the other picture. enter image description here

    Welcome, right now, this question is too broad and cannot be answered. You can create slides with LaTeX, one class specialising in that is called beamer.

  • This is not a we-do-it-for-you-site. It is possible to create this in beamer. But you should try to do it and ask here if you encounter problems you can not solve on your own.

  • I have used beamer earlier. Sorry for not making it clear. I just have never seen situations like this.

  • There are many tools that you can use to make such a presentation. If you want to do it with beamer, start doing it. When you get stuck at some point, not knowing how to achieve a certain effect, feel free to ask again.

  • Can you specify what you mean by situations like this? This slide can be done in beamer, but to avoid useless work, it would be nice to know what element you are interested in. Mar 26, 2017 at 12:39
