overview

The first task-based guide to Keynote is back, just in time for the revision of Apple's elegant presentation software, Keynote. Keynote 2 for Mac OS X: Visual QuickStart Guide gets readers quickly up-to-speed on the powerful presentation software through detailed step-by-step tasks and hundreds of screenshots. Business and educational users will want to start leveraging the power of Apple's graphics- intensive Keynote presentation software ($79, as part of Apple's iWork suite) immediately--dragging and dropping graphics, digital photos, QuickTime movies, and audio into their slide shows; creating animations, shadows, and labels for their charts and tables; producing dynamic drop shadows and cinematic transitions between slides; and more--and this Visual QuickProject Guide will show them how. Task-based instructions, peppered with plenty of full- color screenshots, tips, and sidebars make it easy to dive in and start creating high-impact presentations in no time. Readers will learn how to use Keynote's professionally designed "themes" to create coordinated backgrounds, fonts, colors, bullets, tables, and charts in seconds.
