I have a 35 page pdf file that looks like it was originally a Powerpoint presentation.


Is ther an easy way to convert a pdf file to Keynote?

    you cant convert PDF to a Keynote.


    options are:


    use the Keynote as a presentation itself by using full screen mode in Acrobat reader


    if the security settings in the PDF allow, you may be able to copy and paste single pages, images or text into Keynote.

    Actually, after more messing around with the file I wanted to convert, I found that if I saved the pdf file as a jpeg using Adobe Acrobat I ended up with a desltoop full of thumbnails which I could then drag into Keynote. Fortunately, the format of the jpeg files were perfect in my particular case.

    Excellent idea


    better still, save them as TIFF files for increased resolution
