# prevent logo from title page in beamer class

I'm having problems with inserting a logo on my presentation in the beamer class.

\logo{\includegraphics[scale=0.05]{logo.png}}


This is how I inserted the logo, which works perfectly; it is placed in the lower right hand corner as desired.

But I don't want the logo on the title slide. Is there a way to hide the logo on the title slide?

You should also upvote Alan Munn's answer (this has to be done separately from accepting). –  lockstep May 22 '12 at 21:49

Just use

\frame[plain]{\titlepage}


instead of \maketitle to make your titlepage slide.

Depending on your needs, the following question might also be of use:

Wow, that was fast and very helpful! Thanks also for the link. –  Newby1 May 22 '12 at 21:47

Another option, which only removes the logo but maintains all the other elements, is to locally redefine the logo template for the title page:

\documentclass{beamer}
\usetheme{Berkeley}

\logo{\includegraphics[scale=0.02]{ctanlion}}

\title{The Title}
\author{The Author}
\institute{The Institute}

\begin{document}

{
\setbeamertemplate{logo}{}
\begin{frame}
\maketitle
\end{frame}
}

\begin{frame}
test
\end{frame}

\end{document}

Thanks for this as well. Still amazing how many things are possible with Latex.... –  Newby1 May 22 '12 at 21:59

A simpler solution is to define the logo immediately after the titlepage such that it doesn't appear in that frame.

For example:

\documentclass{beamer}
\usetheme{Berkeley}

\title{The Title}
\author{The Author}
\institute{The Institute}

\begin{document}
\begin{frame}
\titlepage
\end{frame}

% insert the logo here
\logo{\includegraphics[width=1.5cm]{logopolito}} % <= test image
\begin{frame}
test
\end{frame}

\end{document}


will produce the following frames:

Of course, the method holds for all subsequent frames in your presentation.
