I hae used Keynote and created a theme that was 300x250 - a standard box banner size.  the keynote file is exported ushing the SHARE function to a MOV file which can then be opened by GifBrewery.  I have tweaked the settings and through Gif Brewery created a very acceptable banner ad.  MY QUESTION  I would like to create a leaderboard banner 728 wide x 90 tall and a skyscraper 728 tall x 160 wide banner however Keynote will not let me chnge the size of the smaller dimension 90 or 160 ANY SUGGESTIONS??

    Keynote is a presentation application and is designed for that purpose, therefore the pixel dimentions available in Keynoteare are proportional to that supported by the graphics card in the computer.

    Keynote wont  go smaller than 200 px and 4000 px


    If you need this flexibility you will need to use a graphics editing application; Photoshop - Paintshop, even the freeware apps like Paintbrush.

    In the situations where I needed a size Keynote didn't support, I've created at some multiple that Keynote DOES support then use Preview to render it at the final size I wanted.


    For example, have Keynote export 1456x180, Open that in Preview, Show the Edit Toolbar (Shift-Command-A), then choose the Adjust Size icon on the right and put in 728x90. Export that as the file type you need and there you go.
