Hi, my name's Rich Harrington and welcome today. We're going to be taking a look at using Keynote along with photos and video. Now if you want to go ahead and create photography or portfolio presentations, this is a great class for you. Or, if you're just a standard presenter needing to build more effective slide presentations, I'll show you how to add photos and video to your presentations, making sure that they're the right size, as well as proper aesthetics to really get some effective designs. We've got a lot of great stuff to cover today and I've been using Keynote for a very long time.
In fact, I find Keynote to be a great way, whether I'm showing my photography off. Or just building a business presentation for my company, or an educational presentation when I'm teaching. I use this application all the time, but I'm a big believer in the power of visuals. So throughout the course, we're going to share lots of ideas as well as some of the simplified theories that really take a presentation from being good to great.
