I understand that background picture in the talk could be very
distractive and I am not going to use it. Still, I wanted to be able
to put it. As a result I came to the following solution

% and other customizing color- inner- outer- font- themes

\usepackage{eso-pic} % great for adding backgrounds

\AddToShipoutPicture{ \put(0,5){%

%eso-pic routine for adding pictures \AddToShipoutPicture* would
affect only current page
%background.pdf is a file containing picture in question

\setbeamercolor{background canvas}{bg=} %setting own beamer background

% Then as usual beamer document


Does anyone knows a simpler solution?
