Modern Mac computers come with the option to purchase iWork, an Apple-only set of applications for word processing documents, presentations and spread sheets. In the iWork package comes Keynote, presentation software that allows users to create presentations with pictures, text, transitions, movies and music. Once you are finished making your presentation, you can export it as a SWF file, a flash file. Therefore, as long as you have Keynote, you can easily create flash files on a Mac.
Things You'll Need
- iWork with Keynote
Open Keynote in the dock or in your "Hard drive/iWork/Applications" folder. Double-click on the Keynote icon to open it.
Add text, pictures, music or movies to your presentation. Add movies, music and pictures by dragging and dropping them into Keynote. Add text by typing it in using the "New Slide" button and typing.
Add transitions between the slides by clicking "Tool bar-> Slide-> Transition," then selecting an effect from the menu.
Save your Keynote as a flash file. Select "Export" from the "File" menu. Select "Flash" and click "Next." Fill out a name and location for the flash file and click "Save." A flash file will be created on your Mac.
Tips & Warnings
- Graphics Converter can also create flash files on the Mac.
- The latest version of iWork only works on Mac OS X 10.4.11 or later.
