It doesn't change anything from the other LaTeX classes. So, if you want to include some pictures, use the usual packages




and the usual code:

{ \frametitle{Include a picture in your slideshow}	
\caption{Caption of the picture I want to include.}

and also for tables:

{ \frametitle{Include a table in your slideshow}	
\begin{tabular}{|c|c|c|} \hline \hline
Flowers & Fruits & Trees\\ \hline \hline
Rose & Apple &  Pine \\
Daisy & Orange &  Oak\\ \hline \hline
\caption{Table example.}

\href{file.jpeg}{Link to a picture}


\href{file.pdf}{Link to a pdf file}

Insert web content dynamically (javascript)

If no theme is specified (or \usetheme{default} is specified), your presentation will be appear simply empty. Otherwise, you can use some predefined themes, such as:

\usetheme{Rochester} %[ works best as \usetheme[height=7mm]{Rochester} ]
