    Hi!

    I am a newbie to using beamer (previous experience only with powerpoint).  So far I really like it.  However there are some things I would like to do that I can't seem to find any options for. 

    First, I would really love it if I could not have the figures centred.  For example, In one case I divided the slide into two columns and put a figure in each column and a caption underneath.  Beamer automatically puts the figure centred in the column so there was little room for the caption which is a bit annoying when there is massive white space above the figure.  I have put:

    \documentclass[t]{beamer}

    and

    \begin{columns}[t]
    \begin{column}{4.0cm}
    \begin{figure}[t]

    but the figures don't seem to want to move away from the centre at all.

    Secondly,  is there a way to put a caption to the side of the figure?  I tried using the package sidecap but when it gets to \begin{SCfigure} pdflatex freezes.  It doesn't produce any of the normal error messages such as it doesn't recognize the command, it just freezes. 

    Lastly, is there a way to change the caption font size?

    Thanks very much for your help!

    Have you figured out what the problem was with \begin{SCfigure} ? because I seem to have the same problem.
