Latex Beamer Templates.

UPDATE: I’ve packed the templates and themes (and in a few days the skeleton), and created a page to have them published: http://carlesm.com/projects/latex-beamer-templatesthemes/

For the last days, starting on easter’s holydays return flight, I’ve been hacking some Makefiles and templates for Latex Beamer package. Beamer is a terrific package for making presentations using Latex. The downside of beamer is that, when you start adding customizations, multiple file outputs (handouts, dual-screen slides, and so) it grows too complex.

I started writing down some makefiles to put some order onto it, and then I found Nick Urbanick’s System for making Latex teaching Material . It was pretty damn near to what I needed, so I d’l it and started hacking around (hey! it’s GPL!).

At the end I finished hacking up his Makefiles to simplify them, removed uses of PostScript, PDF files are enough for me, and so many format conversions imply loosing too much quality.

The template is here: http://carlesm.com/beamer-templates-0.0.1.tgz. UPDATE: I’ve packed the templates and themes (and in a few days the skeleton), and created a page to have them published: http://carlesm.com/projects/latex-beamer-templatesthemes/

On the next days (less than a week I hope), I’ll create a nicer page, a trac and svn repository, and I’ll package and tidy the styles I use. Meanwhile, all questions can go to the comments of this post.

  4. Hi, not looked at your packages but you might not lose anything by generating postscript files and then converting to pdf – both should be vector graphic formats.
    In some cases i’ve found generating dvi then ps, then pdf works more like expected than using pdflatex. If you are generating pdf from the dvi then i’m way off mark.

    Thanks for sharing.

  5. Actually, you might loose information by generating a .ps first; it can’t use all bitmap image files PDF’s support, so you might end up with less nice images, converted to grayscale or similar.
