The definitive full-frame graphic command for beamer in LaTeX

After my previous post on the same topic, I have improved upon the command considerably. This time, it is based on Matthew Leingang’s answer on the question Image on full slide in beamer package.


\fullframegraphic[optional credits]{path/to/image}

To use, copy this definition in your preamble. Requires package tikz.

\begin{tikzpicture}[remember picture,overlay]%
\node[at=(current] {%
% optional argument: credits on lower-right corner
\node[at=(current page.south east), anchor=south east,font=\tiny,text=white,fill=black,fill opacity=.5,text opacity=1,inner sep=2pt,text height=1ex,text depth=.25ex] {#1};%

Visual example (for the credits overlay):
