I want to create a slideshow. For some slides I want to have a caption above the image but the rest of the slide filled with the image. How is this possible? Maybe with \usepackage{tikz}? If so, could someone maybe help me with the settings?

For now those slides look like this :

\documentclass[aspectratio=169]{beamer}
\usepackage{media9}
\usepackage{graphicx}
\usepackage{tikz}
\usetheme{default}
\usecolortheme{wolverine}
\begin{document}
\begin{frame}{Some Caption}
 \includegraphics[width=\textwidth,height=\textheight,keepaspectratio]{somepicture.jpg}
\end{frame}
\end{document}

    tikz is not needed to simply include graphic perhaps see some of the questions and answers using "figure" with caption not including the figure number

Something like this? Play with the graphics width in order to fit below the heading:

\documentclass[aspectratio=169]{beamer}

\usepackage{tikz}
\usetikzlibrary{calc}
%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%
% absolute positioning of typeset material    
%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%
\newcommand{\placetextbox}[4][center]{%
  % [#1]: box anchor: center (default) | 
  %                 south west | west | north west | north |
  %                 north east | east | south east | south | 
  %                 mid west | mid | mid east |
  %                 base west | base | base east 
  % #2: horizontal position (fraction of page width)
  % #3: vertical position (fraction of page height)
  % #4: content
  %
  \tikz[remember picture,overlay,x=\paperwidth,y=\paperheight]{%
    \node[anchor=#1,inner sep=0pt]
    at ($(current page.south west)+(#2,#3)$) {#4};
  }%
}
%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%

\begin{document}
\begin{frame}{Some Caption}
  \placetextbox[south]{0.5}{0}{\includegraphics[width=0.68\paperwidth]{example-image-a}}
\end{frame}
\end{document}
