I'm new to presentations with LaTeX; can the Beamer class be used to create flexible page layouts, such as shown below (yellow boxes will be filled with either images or text)? Each page may use a different combination of these yellow boxes, except the leftmost one always stays.

I would appreciate any hint to get started. I have the manuals for beamer and TikZ & PGF.

I am ready to spend some time customizing a template and defining commands if the end product will be reasonably flexible and easy to use.

    The reason this is not easy is because you have to change your way of presentation :) This is more of a PowerPoint style otherwise you can use the columns in combination with block environment. – percusse Nov 30 '12 at 22:51

Here is an example using some columns...

enter image description here

\documentclass[9pt]{beamer}
\usepackage{blindtext}

\begin{document}
\begin{frame}{First Slide Title}
  \begin{columns}
    \column{.22\paperwidth}

    \blinditemize

    \column{.72\paperwidth}

    \begin{columns}

      \column{.32\paperwidth}

      Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetuer adipiscing elit.  Etiam
      lobortis facilisis sem.  Nullam nec mi et neque pharetra
      sollicitudin.

      \column{.32\paperwidth}

      \blindenumerate
    \end{columns}

  \end{columns}
\end{frame}

\begin{frame}{Second Slide Title}
  \begin{columns}
    \column{.22\paperwidth}

    \blinditemize

    \column{.72\paperwidth}

    \begin{columns}

      \column{.32\paperwidth}

      \includegraphics[width=\linewidth]{example-image}

      \column{.32\paperwidth}

      \blindenumerate
    \end{columns}

    \vspace{1cm}

    Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetuer adipiscing elit.  Etiam
    lobortis facilisis sem.  Nullam nec mi et neque pharetra
    sollicitudin.

  \end{columns}
\end{frame}

\begin{frame}{Third Slide Title}
  \begin{columns}
    \column{.22\paperwidth}

    \blinditemize

    \column{.72\paperwidth}

    \includegraphics[width=\linewidth]{example-image}

  \end{columns}
\end{frame}
\end{document}
