LaTeX — specify font point size?

I'm working with beamer and one of my headlines is too big if I use \Large, and too small if I use \large. I'd like it to be just right. Is there a way to set the font size in absolute values, i.e. in points (pt) or something like that?

I'd say my question is a duplicate of this one :) I did search but did not find it. – levesque May 24 '12 at 15:42
