# framed frame in beamer?

Below is an example of the layout I am trying to make for a beamer presentation: just a simple rounded black frame in which I could insert some contents (e.g. text or images).

I have looked at everything (block environment, fancybox package, ...) and I just cannot find a way to do it. If anyone has a suggestion, it would be great and much appreciated!

Could you please elaborate a bit on which beamer theme you want to use, whether this is a plain frame (without title and head-/footline) etc.? –  diabonas Mar 15 '12 at 21:22

You can use the background template to add the frame using TikZ; a little example:

\documentclass{beamer}
\usepackage{tikz}
\usetikzlibrary{calc}

\setbeamertemplate{background}{%
\begin{tikzpicture}[overlay,remember picture]
\draw [line width=1mm,rounded corners]
($(current page.north west) + (0.5cm,-0.5cm)$)
rectangle
($(current page.south east) + (-0.5cm,0.5cm)$);
\end{tikzpicture}%
}

\begin{document}

\begin{frame}
test
\end{frame}

\end{document}
