Why is this so difficult? Tex, stack-exchange, reddit... none have the information I am seeking. My issue is simple, I need to create a poster with two columns: the first one on the left side, thin and with text. The second one spanning the rest of the poster, with images.

Help please?

If you are using one of the beamer based poster packages, e.g. beamerposter columns of different width are actually very easy:

\documentclass{beamer}
\usepackage{beamerposter}

\usepackage{lipsum}

\begin{document}

\begin{frame}
    \begin{columns}[T,onlytextwidth]
        \begin{column}{.2\textwidth}
            \lipsum
        \end{column}
        \begin{column}{.75\textwidth}
            \includegraphics[width=.45\textwidth,page=3]{example-image-duck}\hfill
            \includegraphics[width=.45\textwidth,page=5]{example-image-duck}

            \includegraphics[width=.45\textwidth,page=11]{example-image-duck}\hfill
            \includegraphics[width=.45\textwidth,page=34]{example-image-duck}
        \end{column}
    \end{columns}
\end{frame} 

\end{document}

  • WOW! Genius. Thank you that is EXACTLY what I was looking for. THANK YOU! Sep 30, 2018 at 19:33

  • Do you know why my sections and titles are not showing when I implement this package? Oct 2, 2018 at 18:25
  • When I use this package, all the \section{} or \title{} information is lost in the rendering. Is it because it is a beamer poster? Oct 2, 2018 at 18:26
  • @PedroFontanarrosa To show the title use something like \begin{frame} \maketitle. Sections are indeed not supported. Oct 3, 2018 at 15:44
