I am trying to create beamer theme from using a separate file which contains the style commands. Problems are being encountered when try to add a logo image in the top right. At the moment theme is configuring only the colors of the different types of blocks and the font style.

There are these related questions: Q1link and Q2link which discuss the addition of a logo but they require the addition to an existing theme and template which I am not using/importing. (at the moment my commands used are setbeamercolor,usefonttheme, and useinnertheme.

My goal is to put a logo image in the top left of every slide corner, excluding the titlepage frame which I would like to configure afterwards to be different. I do not mind considering the setting for every side to be with the logo/icon and the title to override this configuration aspect.

I plan to later put a title bar into the top section of the slides

    I would make the title bar first, there is no use of now worrying about the logo placement, if you have to redo it once the headline is in place. And without any explicit information on where the logo should be and how the other frame elements are defined, how shall we help you? – samcarter_is_at_topanswers.xyz Feb 4 '17 at 17:43
  • @samcarter, in the documentation ctan.sharelatex.com/tex-archive/macros/latex/contrib/beamer/doc/… there on section8.2.5 a logo command is described \logo, I don't know if this is the best way to do it though. – Vass Feb 5 '17 at 6:21
  • There is no "the best way" - it entirely depends on where you want the logo to go in respect to your headline. If you want the logo on top of the headline, then no, it's not the best way because the headline will cover the logo. If you want the logo below the headline, then it depends if your headline has a fixed height or if the height is variable (for example depending on the number of sections or if there is a frame(sub-)title. As I said above, do the headline first. – samcarter_is_at_topanswers.xyz Feb 5 '17 at 11:59
