I am making a presentation in LaTex using the Beamer document class. I am using the Hannover theme. This has a navigation bar on the left side and the content of the presentation is on the right hand side.

I want to place background image on a slide (or a frame) but only on the right hand side (spanning the entire right hand side only). I followed this link --> How to insert a background image in a beamer frame? . However, part of the image also lies behind the navigation bar (which I do not want). How can I achieve this?

Edit 1: Here's an MWE:


    \section{A section}
        \usebackgroundtemplate{\includegraphics[width=\paperwidth {../img/cluster-ex-1.png}}%
                    \textit{\textbf{Title of the frame}}            

Here is the result: Result of above latex code

As you can see, the image also lies behind the navigation bar, which I do not want. I want it to occupy the entire right hand side of the presentation only. How can I do the same?
