Both answers spot on, thanks, with just a minor problem: adding
\titlegraphic won't make the spacing between \title \author \data as
produced by \maketitle shrink so the entire slide is pretty much used
up and the image doesn't fit in. Is there a way to override that?

Wrt your reply in pvt to my other question, sorry if I wasn't clear.
Your suggestion of using \includegraphics straight into the heading
works just fine, my issue is that I was trying to do it the org way
and use a link (as in C-u C-c C-l) which would have then requried a
#+ATTR_LaTeX header to pass in the width parameter.

I did some more work last night and came across another issues:
- #BEGIN_VERBATIM won't work because to use the \begin{verbatim}
environment the \being{frame} requires [fragile]

Also, given a variable like org-export-latex-image-default-option, is
there any way to override it per file or per document class?

Last thing, if you're gonna use latex commands requiring paths to
files, how do you insert the path? using C-u C-l isn't really an
option as that will add a link and not just the path to the file so
then you have to delete the [[ ]].

thanks again for all the help
