    Gary… Great tips. Since migrating to a Mac 10 years ago I’ve always used Pages for my presentations. Didn’t want to take the time to learn another app, I think. This makes me seriously reconsider learning and using Keynote. Thanks.

    Hi Gary
    A great video! About 1.59 in you talk about a nice “bold font”. I really like this. What is it and how can I get it on my macbook?

    Bruce: That’s Cooper Black, probably one of the most famous fonts of all time. Search “Cooper Black Font” and you’ll find various places you can purchase it.

    Hi Gary,
    I have quick work around for bug in tip 4. I use this all the time. Once you drop the images and the slides are populated, Change Master is available in the Inspector. Select and from drop down, select blank format, this will remove all of the slide formats for ones just created.

    is there a way to change the opacity of an image (photo) that is on a Keynote Slide? I want to “soften” up or lightened the background picture (jpg)

    Scott: Yes. Select the image and go to the Format sidebar, Style. Then look for Opacity. You can put a rectangle under it with a solid color if you need. I also like to instead put a rectangle over it and set the rectangle’s opacity instead.
