Both Pages and Keynote are deceptively robust programs. While they are easy to use, they also support an incredible number of features. Most users (and even most exercises in this book) focus on how easily these programs interface with the iLife suite of applications. While this integration is awesome, you'll find that you can tie iWork into the Apple Pro applications as well. By harnessing the power of applications like Aperture, Motion, QuickTime, Photoshop, and Final Cut Pro, you can take Pages and Keynote even further.

This lesson focuses on advanced techniques for creating and exporting content. Because both Pages and Keynote support embedded alpha channels, it's relatively easy to create advanced content for your page layouts or presentations. Additionally, iWork supports a robust array of graphic formats (including advanced types that cannot be created with iLife applications). You can also export this content to share with others. Publishing from Pages has been covered thoroughly in this book, and you have tried exporting your Keynote presentations in various formats. Here, you'll learn how to export content from iWork for publication on the Internet or to cut into a video project.

You may not have all of the applications used in this lesson, so complete only the exercises that relate to your needs.
