Video: Creating custom photo cutouts

In Keynote 3 Essential Training, Garrick Chow shows viewers how to use Apple's robust presentation software to build dynamic and compelling slideshows. Keynote 3 Essential Training teaches presentation tools that will keep audiences engaged, whether in the boardroom, the classroom, or the family room. Garrick begins by exploring the Keynote interface and demonstrating how to create and manage slides. From there he moves on to adding text, graphics, tables, charts, and even audio and video files to slides. Once the slides have been created, Garrick teaches users how to dazzle their audiences with animated transitions and object builds. Additionally, Garrick explains how to create custom templates and how to export presentations in a variety of formats.
