Keynote for Mac

Your presentation. Totally decked out.

Keynote for Mac makes it simple to create and deliver beautiful presentations. Updated for OS X El Capitan, Keynote employs powerful tools and dazzling effects that bring your ideas to life. You can work seamlessly between Mac and iOS devices. And work effortlessly with people who use Microsoft PowerPoint.

What does the app keynote do

Powerful creative tools

Make a great show of your ideas.

Picture a dazzling presentation. Then make it happen with easy‑to‑use visual tools. Drop in photos or video. Add reflections and picture frames. Punch up your data with interactive charts. Use the new Split View feature in OS X El Capitan to source stock art in Safari. Then tie it all together with cinema‑quality transitions. Keynote is built to handle it. Spectacularly.


Truly special effects.

Use over 30 stunning cinematic transitions and effects for objects and text that will affect your audience in a big way.

A pixel-perfect performance.

Pixel‑accurate rulers and alignment guides make it a snap to line up elements on your slide. Just drag until the guide appears, then let go. Everything literally snaps into position.

Visual aids for your visual aids.

Powerful image editing tools help you make every frame an eye‑opener. Automatically tweak photos with one‑click image enhancement. Remove a photo’s background with Instant Alpha. Or even add advanced graphics like contact shadows.

Make your pitch perfect with presentation tools.

The new Split View feature in OS X El Capitan makes quick work of multitasking. Now you can revise your presentation while reviewing your notes. Or resize a chart while searching for supporting visuals in Safari.

Designed for simplicity

It’s easy to get the show started.

Right from the beginning, Keynote sets the stage for a compelling presentation. A clean, intuitive interface puts all the tools you need front and center. And it’s built to harness the 64‑bit performance of OS X El Capitan. So everything runs smoothly — no matter how big or graphically rich.

What does the app keynote do

Look good. Before you’ve made your first point.

Apple‑designed themes instantly give your presentation a polished look. Choose from over 30 eye‑catching designs.

The right tools. Right at hand.

The format panel automatically displays relevant options based on what you’ve selected. So you have the tools you need, just when you need them.

Your canvas is now the center of attention.

The canvas you work on is centered in your window, making it easier to handle objects outside the slide borders. It may seem like a little thing. Until you have to animate something from offscreen.

Data takes center stage.

When it comes to explaining data, a chart is worth a thousand words. Choose from column, bar, pie, scatter, bubble charts, and more. Use animation to add visual impact. And make your charts interactive to focus attention on important stages of the story. The effect is huge, but the effort isn’t.

Interactive charts that steal the show.

Take your audience through your data step by step with interactive charts. Just move the slider to advance your chart through the data points. And to wow the audience.

It’s easy to style your chart. Choose types, pick textures, specify 2D or 3D, and much more. So your data has your personality.

Keynote everywhere

Put all your devices to work. Together.

Always at hand.

Now with iCloud Drive, you have a place in the cloud where you can store all kinds of files, organize them however you want, and access them from any of your devices. Put a presentation in an iCloud Drive folder on one device and you’ll find it in the same folder on your other devices with your latest edits — so you never have to wonder what’s where or which is the latest version.

What does the app keynote do

See it here. See it there.

With Handoff, you can seamlessly switch from Keynote on your iOS device to Keynote on your Mac and vice versa. Whatever presentation you were last working on will be there waiting for you with all your latest edits. Thanks to a single file format shared by Keynote for Mac and Keynote for iOS, your presentation will look the same no matter the device.

Expand your audience.

Keynote makes it easy to share your show with a cast of dozens. Right from the toolbar, you can send a copy of your file. Or share a link to your presentation that people can view even on mobile browsers. You can also work on files that are stored with third-party services. And presentations can be sent via services such as Gmail or Dropbox. It makes connecting with your team — and ultimately your audience — a lot smoother.

Lots of ways to deliver your presentation. Before you give it.

Quickly and easily share a link to your work via Mail, Messages, Twitter, or Facebook. So colleagues can conveniently view the shared presentation in any browser — even on iOS or Android. Getting all the players involved is easier than ever.

AirDrop. Just click Share and it’s there.

AirDrop lets you instantly and securely send your presentation directly to someone nearby over Wi‑Fi, without having to attach it to an email or a message.

Microsoft PowerPoint friendly

You don’t have to work in Office to work with Office.
