Keynote is Apple's iWork application for creating effective and impressive presentations. In Keynote '09 Essential Training, presentation designer Craig Syverson teaches new and experienced Keynote users how to apply this program to its full potential. Craig demonstrates the entire creative process, from building basic slides with text and images and using the new built-in themes, to distributing the final product. Exercise files accompany the course.
Another way to export is to create individual images of each slide. Let me show you how that works going up to the Share menu, I'll pull down Export, I click on Images and here you see these options I have, I can choose a range of slides. I do this a lot if I just want to send the image of one slide like slide 3. The box here for, Create an image for each stage of builds, again be careful if you have a lot of builds that will create a whole new file for each stage of a build. So if there are five builds on the slide, there will be six slides for that particular one. You can dial in the format, JPEG. You can change the quality you want. PNG is pretty good, the one I use a lot. TIFF, if you want to make sure you have the highest quality. PNG is a good one if you just want to send a basic file.
It's going to be of really good quality. Clicking Next here will set you up with the final location where you can have all those images go. Another thing that generates images is exporting to HTML. Here we see a very similar set up in terms of choosing the format. Now because it's sending an HTML document, it's creating web compatible HTML documents. So it doesn't include TIFF because TIFFs are not a part of the web standard. Also, you can include navigation controls, so someone could look through these still images using a web browser. And it will add a navigation tool so you just have to send in the HTML file and the folder of images and they can navigate them using a regular browser. I'll cancel that.
So another way to share images that's very handy is to go up here to Share and go Send To, iPhoto. And here we have the same idea as before. Dial in the same kind of quality, then when you click Next you will be asked to give an Album Name for these images that you are sending. So if I were to send this off now, it will create an album in iPhoto called Ducati Superbike with all these different images in it. So you can see here it's importing straight into iPhoto and very quickly now I have a copy of all of these individual images that I can use like I can in any other context in iPhoto. And it's a great way to keep things organized. It's a great way to keep an archive perhaps of your slides in case you want them later. And all that happens straight with a Keynote just with one click.
