# Figure to overlap text in beamer

I am making a beamer presentation. How can I force LaTeX to overlap text with a figure. I mean text is below the figure. Is it possible to try something like that with beamer?

Have you considered adding a caption? (Oh! and Welcome to TeX.SX!) – Sean Allred Jun 5 '13 at 19:17

Yes, it's possible; use TikZ and put the image inside a \node to control position, opacity and other attributes:

\documentclass{beamer}
\usepackage{tikz}
\usepackage{lipsum}

\begin{document}

\begin{frame}
\lipsum[4]
\begin{tikzpicture}[remember picture,overlay]
\node at (current page.center) {\includegraphics[width=5cm]{example-image-a}};
\end{tikzpicture}
\end{frame}

\end{document}


Needs two compilations.
