Include figures

http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/LaTeX/Floats,_Figures_and_Captions#Figures

Captions can be handled with the packet \usepackage{caption} http://www.ctan.org/tex-archive/macros/latex/contrib/caption/

A change of

\renewcommand{\figurename}{Fig.}

(AFTER \begin{document}) fixes this.

The Trim option

trim=l b r t

This option will crop the imported image by l from the left, b from the bottom, r from the right, and t from the top. Where l, b, r and t are lengths.

clip

For the trim option to work, you must set clip=true.

Subfigures etc…

According to the link http://www.golatex.de/subfig-vs-subcaption-floatrow-etc-t4226.html the subcaption or the floatrow package should be used to do this…

http://www.tug.org/texlive/Contents/live/texmf-dist/doc/latex/caption/subcaption.pdf

Hack to align the subfigures at the top and place the caption side by side:

\begin{figure}[htb]
\centering%
\begin{minipage}[t]{.5\linewidth}\vspace{0pt}
\centering
\includegraphics[scale=.35]{1}%
\end{minipage}%
\begin{minipage}[t]{.5\linewidth}\vspace{0pt}
\centering
\includegraphics[scale=.22]{2}
\vspace*{\fill}\vspace*{\fill}
\end{minipage}\\
\begin{minipage}[b]{.5\linewidth}\vspace{0pt}
\subcaption{}
\end{minipage}%
\begin{minipage}[b]{.5\linewidth}\vspace{0pt}
\subcaption{}
\end{minipage}%
\caption{…}
\end{figure}

Minipage alignment

To align minipages vertically one can use the [tbc] option. However, one also may need to add a \vspace{0pt} to the top of each minipage in order to see an effect

QR-Codes (2011-08-10)

There is a blog entry here: http://xaphire.de/recipes/?p=344

Basically the packet http://ctan.org/tex-archive/graphics/pstricks/contrib/pst-barcode is used.

To use pdflatex see this link http://www.tug.org/pipermail/texhax/2009-September/013160.html

solution is based on \usepackage{auto-pst-pdf,pst-barcode} and to compile one has to use

pdflatex -shell-escape <file>
Information can be encoded using the MECARD format http://code.google.com/p/zxing/wiki/BarcodeContents
