Overview

Tired of the lackluster graphics and dull, canned look of PowerPoint presentations? At last you have an alternative: Apple Computer's graphics-intensive Keynote presentation software. If you give presentations on a regular basis, you'll want to start leveraging the power of Keynote immediately--dragging and dropping graphics, digital photos, QuickTime movies, and audio into your slide shows; creating animations, shadows, and labels for your charts and tables; producing dynamic drop shadows and cinematic transitions between slides; and more--and this Visual QuickStart Guide will show you how.

Veteran presenter, QuickStart author, and Mac guru Tom Negrino makes it easy to dive in and start creating high-impact presentations in no time by providing step-by-step instructions peppered with plenty of screen shots, tips, and sidebars. You'll learn how to use Keynote's professionally designed "themes" to create coordinated backgrounds, fonts, colors, bullets, tables, and charts in seconds. And if you're interested in creating a custom look, you'll find plenty of instructions for that as well. The best part? You don't need to be a graphics artist to produce visually stunning (and stunningly effective) presentations with Keynote.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
If you see one more boring PowerPoint, you’ll…. Hold that thought. If you’re running Mac OS X, Keynote gives you a brilliant alternative. This is the tool for creating the presentations you always imagined. Layered graphics, opacity adjustments, breathtaking Quartz-rendered typography, 3D transitions you must see to believe…integrated QuickTime…. Keynote will wake your audience from its PowerPoint-templated stupor and shock them to attention. And it’s easy -- especially if you own Keynote for Mac OS X: Visual QuickStart Guide.

Expert presenter Tom Negrino has written the task-based guide to Keynote. You’ll find all the step-by-step instructions, screen shots, tips, and sidebars you expect from this series…plus the author’s own powerful insights on effective presentation.

Here are the nuts and bolts: slide masters, type, and Keynote’s rich graphics features: resizing, rotation, layering, fills, borders, drop shadows, transparency, and more. Want to include rich media? Here’s how to record MP3 narrations, insert Flash, even composite images and movies (try that in PowerPoint)!

There’s thorough coverage of tables, charts, and transitions, and a chapter on actually making your presentation -- from printing producer scripts to displaying on dual monitors.

Negrino also shows how to import AppleWorks presentations, Microsoft Office tables and imagery, and database data. Of course, there’s practical help with PowerPoint import/export. Not everyone’s lucky enough to have Keynote. Let’s just keep this competitive advantage our little secret, shall we? Bill Camarda
