Re: Creating a Banner for presentation

David who is so good at FE programming will probably come out with a 
detailed answer, but in case, this does the job:
 DockedCells -> Cell[BoxData[ToBoxes[rose]], TextAlignment -> Center]]

The answer lies in what Cell accepts as content (see documentation). There 
might be a simpler way using the GraphicsData["type",data] as cell content, 
but a 3min search in the documentation gave no info about what "type" should 
be for the rose image...  Guessing and using Graphics["Raster",rose]  gives 
a grey box... But the  BoxData[ToBoxes[...]] way does the job.
