I am creating a presentation using the Beamer document class. I was wondering if it would be possible to have the same picture appear as a background of each slide.

This is the image I am referring to. enter image description here

I want to be able to put the outline on the side strip if possible. Is there any particular theme that allows me to do so? Any usepackages I will need?

Thanks in advanced for all the help.


Here's one possibility using the sidebar outer theme; the background canvas template was used to include the image in the background; the headline and frametitle templates were also redefined to take into account the width of the left image:


    \vbox to \beamer@headheight{%
      \advance\leftskip by1cm%
      \advance\rightskip by0.3cm plus1fil%
        \hbox to \beamer@sidebarwidth{\hss\vbox to
        \vrule width0pt height \beamer@headheight%  
\setbeamersize{text margin left=1cm,text margin right=0.5cm}
\setbeamertemplate{background canvas}{\includegraphics[width=\paperwidth,height=\paperheight]{kodvZ}}


\section{Test section}
\frametitle{Test tile}
\framesubtitle{Test subtile}

\subsection{Test subsection}
