How to Import Pictures & Icons Into Keynote

Save

Keynote, Apple’s answer to Microsoft PowerPoint, allows users to import pictures and icons into the program with the ease they have come to expect from the OS X operating system. A part of the iWork suite of applications, Keynote is an application geared toward presentations, both creating them and running them. The pre-set themes in Keynote can be customized by importing pictures and icons into the slides of a presentation.

  • Open “Applications > iWork > Keynote.” Select a template from the gallery or open an existing file.

  • Import a picture or icon file directly into Keynote by opening the folder in the Finder where the image file is located. Drag the file over to the open Keynote screen. A green plus sign will appear when you are holding it over the screen. Release the file and the image will appear on the screen. Resize the image as desired.

  • Import a picture or icon file to Keynote by dragging it from another open application and dropping it on the Keynote screen. Resize the image as desired.

  • Import a picture or icon into Keynote by copying and pasting from another program such as Preview, Acrobat or a Web browser. Select the image by highlighting it and pressing Command+C or by selecting “Copy” from the edit menu. In a Web browser, control-click the image and select “Copy Image.” Paste the image in Keynote by pressing Command+V or by selecting “Paste” from the edit menu. Resize the image as desired.
