# beamer: how to use \pause with textblock* environment

I'd like to show the parts of my slides one after the of the other. I found the \pause command, but it doesn't work with my graphics, which are in the textblock* environment for being in the position they are supposed to be because that was the only solution I could find.

When I have a slide with\pause, the figures (graphics) appear all before the first \pause can "show" them. It feels like they ignore that command.

\documentclass[10pt]{beamer}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage[ngerman]{babel}
\usepackage{lmodern}
\usepackage{ngerman}
\usepackage{amsmath}
\usepackage{amssymb}
\usepackage{textcomp}
\usepackage{lipsum}
\usepackage{gensymb}
\usepackage[absolute,overlay]{textpos}
\usepackage{graphicx}

\begin{document}
\begin{frame}
\frametitle{Try 1}
\begin{textblock*}{\textwidth}(0.8\textwidth,1cm)%specific position, I hope the numbers cannot matter...
\includegraphics[width=4cm,keepaspectratio]{tryone.eps}
\end{textblock*}\vfill\pause
\lipsum[1]
\pause
\lipsum[2]
\end{frame}
\end{document}


Pretty nailed it. Is the solution with\begin{textblock*}a good one at all for positioning the graphics?

You can instruct \includegraphics on which overlays your image should be displayed, e.g. if you want it to act like of there had been a \pause before the image, use <+(1)->.

And as you have already been told in comments, you don't need graphicx in beamer.

\usepackage{amssymb}
\usepackage{textcomp}
\usepackage{lipsum}
\usepackage{gensymb}
\usepackage[absolute,overlay]{textpos}
%\usepackage{graphicx}

\begin{document}
\begin{frame}
\frametitle{Try 1}
\begin{textblock*}{\textwidth}(0.8\textwidth,1cm)%specific position, I hope the numbers cannot matter...
\includegraphics<+(1)->[width=4cm,keepaspectratio]{example-image}
\end{textblock*}\vfill\pause
\lipsum[1]
\pause
\lipsum[2]
\end{frame}
\end{document}
