I'm trying to include an image to my beamer using Tikz. The problem is that I don't find the code to position the image horizontally and vertically as well as being able to change its opacity.

    Welcome to TeX.se. You haven't given us very much information to be able to help you. Can you edit your question to show a minimal compilable document that shows what you are trying to do? Are you using beamer? Is the image supposed to be a background image for all your slides? On positioning, see e.g. Beamer background image centered On setting opacity for an included image see Includegraphics: set image opacity.

Welcome to TeX-SE! Thanks for adding some code. Given that you load tikz and the calc library, I'd like to suggest

\begin{tikzpicture}[overlay,remember picture]
\node[opacity=0.5] at ($(current page.center)+(1,1)$)

enter image description here

With overlay,remember picture you can access and use absolute page coordinates, and with calc you can add coordinates, as illustrated.
