Apple Computer has thrown its hat into the presentation-software ring with the introduction of Keynote. The program creates full-screen slideshows and offers professional themes, anti-aliased fonts and cinema-quality builds and transitions. Graphics can be resized, rotated, aligned and layered, as well as have their transparency adjusted for better blending with other elements. One of the strongest features of this presentation software is its flexibility. It can import PowerPoint slides as well as QuickTime, PDF, Flash, Photoshop, MP3 and other formats. It will also export presentations in PowerPoint, QuickTime and PDF formats. (julie hill)Apple Keynote
