I can think of a work around that might accomplish your goal.
Open the PDF in Preview and zoom in until it is scaled to the size you want.
Use the screen shot command (http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=61544) to take a picture of the zoomed in image.
In your presentation click on the small version of the graphic.
Go to the Build Inspector and choose "Swap".
Add the screen shot you made as the 2nd Swap image.
When you trigger the build you will go from the small version of the graphic to the large version.
Hope that helps.

thanks for the answer. But unfortunately it's not helping much because the small image is situated in the right bottom corner. On click I want to move it to the middle and scale it bigger. With your solution i cannot move it and I see just one quarter of the image.
Why is the quality so bad when scaling? Keynote doesn't use the original pdf?MacBook Pro mid 2009, Mac OS X (10.6.3)
Currently Being ModeratedJan 13, 2011 9:44 AM (in response to DaPhil)Ok, found a solution. After doing the moving to the middle and rescaling to 200% just let the same image with the 200% sizing appear after. But Apple should really make it possible to do the resizing with better quality... Is there a possibility to make such a recommendation? Thanks anyway for the answer, gave me the right direction...
