Summary
Give better presentations with this handy guide covering Keynote for the Mac! Need to give a presentation, but worried about how you'll do? Steve Jobs relied on Keynote for his famous keynote presentations, and while using Keynote won't guarantee Jobs-level success, Joe Kissell's advice in Take Control of Keynote will get you closer. Drawing on years of speaking experience, Joe suggests you start by figuring out what you want to say -- and he explains exactly how to accomplish this task, even though you won't do it in Keynote. He then helps you work in Keynote with the right theme, and explains how to create slides by filling in placeholders, adding objects (images, movies, sounds, tables, and charts), and inserting and styling text. You'll also learn how to add build effects to slides and transitions between slides, as well as how to make self-playing presentations designed for kiosks, and presentations with recorded narration or a soundtrack. Finally, Joe offers real-world advice about delivering presentations, including tips on what to bring, making presenter notes and customizing the presenter display, setting up your display, and controlling your presentation. "As someone whose life (and income) is doing training presentations, this ebook is the most useful I have ever bought. I know Keynote well and have used it since its first release; however, Joe's ebook has both challenged me to think about the way I structure my presentations and has taught me stuff about Keynote I didn't know." -Michael Durrant, Psychologist ... mental health & corporate trainer (Sydney, Australia) You'll learn how to use the features that go into making a great slide deck: Making master slides with carefully positioned placeholders Adjusting the slide order Viewing more than one slide at once Using all the fancy layout features to position objects on a slide Applying cool visual effects to photos, such as masking and Instant Alpha Sorting out builds gone wild with the Build Order palette Hiding particular slides from an audience without deleting them Taking control of text boxes and Keynote's many text styling options Creating a presentation that requires clicks in specific places to advance Commenting on slides while collaborating on your presentation Additional advice helps you prep for a successful delivery and avoid technical glitches: What to consider in advance, with respect to the screen(s) you'll be using Practicing the mechanics of delivering from Keynote..
