Lesson 11. For the Power User (Bonus Lesson)

One of iWork's strengths is its easy integration with iPhoto, iTunes, and the other iLife applications. Creative professionals can take Keynote and Pages even further by using it in conjunction with Adobe Photoshop and Apple's Final Cut Studio suite.

Lesson 11, located on the DVD in PDF form, offers some advanced techniques for using iWork with other applications to create even more sophisticated content. Because Pages and Keynote support embedded alpha channels, it's relatively easy to incorporate advanced content into your page layouts and presentations. If you don't have all of the applications mentioned in this lesson, you can still follow along by using the finished media files provided on the DVD.
