[OS X TeX] including logo in Prosper slides

I use pdfslide with success (should be available on CTAN at 
http://www.ctan.org/).  You can easily include backgrounds and a 
(unusually shaped) logo in the upper right.  I believe to change the 
background on the title slide you need to change  line 121(?)
	\def\@overlay{???.???}% fishhaze4.jpg
in the pdfslide.sty file.  To change the logo picture you have to edit 
lines 166-167 (?)
  in the file pdfslide.sty.

Good luck.
