I'm having problems with inserting a logo on my presentation in the beamer class.

\logo{\includegraphics[scale=0.05]{logo.png}}

This is how I inserted the logo, which works perfectly; it is placed in the lower right hand corner as desired.

But I don't want the logo on the title slide. Is there a way to hide the logo on the title slide?

Just use

\frame[plain]{\titlepage}

instead of \maketitle to make your titlepage slide.

Depending on your needs, the following question might also be of use:

How can I include the logo in some slides and remove in others, using beamer?.

Another option, which only removes the logo but maintains all the other elements, is to locally redefine the logo template for the title page:

\documentclass{beamer}
\usetheme{Berkeley}

\logo{\includegraphics[scale=0.02]{ctanlion}}

\title{The Title}
\author{The Author}
\institute{The Institute}

\begin{document}

{
\setbeamertemplate{logo}{}
\begin{frame}
\maketitle
\end{frame}
}

\begin{frame}
test
\end{frame}

\end{document}

    Just don't forget to remove ignorenonframetext option from beamer class; this had me stumped for quite a while... Commented Oct 31, 2016 at 13:08

A simpler solution is to define the logo immediately after the titlepage such that it doesn't appear in that frame.

For example:

\documentclass{beamer}
\usetheme{Berkeley}

\title{The Title}
\author{The Author}
\institute{The Institute}

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

% insert the logo here
\logo{\includegraphics[width=1.5cm]{logopolito}} % <= test image 
\begin{frame}
test
\end{frame}

\end{document}

will produce the following frames:

Of course, the method holds for all subsequent frames in your presentation.
