Using beamer, I'm trying to add an image to the title page. Currently I'm doing this by using the command as an argument for the \date command, since it would be left blank anyway. Now, the image shows up beneath the authors. I don't want to leave the \author part blank and add the names manually, because the authors also show up in the footnote. I'm using the Dresden theme. I've tried a bunch but I'm not getting it to look right. How do I add the title image above the authors, with the authors still showing up in the footnote?

Currently, this is my code:

\documentclass{beamer}
\usetheme{Dresden}

\title{Title}
\subtitle{Subtitle}
\author{Auth1 \and Auth2 \and Auth3}
\date{\includegraphics[width=117pt,height=175pt,keepaspectratio]{image.png}}

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

In order to have the most possibilities to achieve any layout you like, you can just define your own title page:

\documentclass{beamer}
\usetheme{Dresden}

\setbeamertemplate{title page}
{
    \vbox{}
    \vfill
    \begingroup
    \centering
    \begin{beamercolorbox}[sep=8pt,center]{title}
        \usebeamerfont{title}\inserttitle\par%
        \ifx\insertsubtitle\@empty%
        \else%
        \vskip0.25em%
        {\usebeamerfont{subtitle}\usebeamercolor[fg]{subtitle}\insertsubtitle\par}%
        \fi%     
    \end{beamercolorbox}%
    \begin{center}
        \includegraphics[width=117pt,height=175pt,keepaspectratio]{pic}
    \end{center}
    \begin{beamercolorbox}[sep=8pt,center]{author}
        \usebeamerfont{author}\insertauthor
    \end{beamercolorbox}
    \begin{beamercolorbox}[sep=8pt,center]{institute}
        \usebeamerfont{institute}\insertinstitute
    \end{beamercolorbox}
    \begin{beamercolorbox}[sep=8pt,center]{date}
        \usebeamerfont{date}\insertdate
    \end{beamercolorbox}\vskip0.5em
    {\usebeamercolor[fg]{titlegraphic}\inserttitlegraphic\par}
    \endgroup
    \vfill
}

\title{Title}
\subtitle{Subtitle}
\author{Auth1 \and Auth2 \and Auth3}
\date{}

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