Multi-Column slides in Beamer

Published on

Updated on

When creating slides in LaTex Beamer, it can be frustrating to not have the easy ability to drag text boxes around. Luckily, creating a multi-column layout in Beamer is not difficult! Below is an example of a two column slide layout, where the left side is a bulleted list, and the right side is an image:

\documentclass{beamer}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}

% Beamer Packages
\usepackage{harvard}
\usetheme{Copenhagen}


\begin{document}

\begin{frame}{About Me}
\begin{columns}

% Column 1
\column{.5\linewidth}
\begin{itemize}
    \item Enjoy going on short hikes.
    \item Forgetful at times and writes blog posts to jog my memory.
\end{itemize}

% Column 2
\column{.5\linewidth}
\centering
\includegraphics[width=4cm]{images/avatar.jpg}

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