PDF to Keynote converts PDF-based presentations (e.g., made using LaTeX and Prosper) into Apple's Keynote format. Presenting in Keynote has several advantages over Preview or Adobe Reader, including a highly configurable presenter display, rehearsal support, notes and annotations visible only to the presenter, and of course Keynote's trademark transitions. Once translated into Keynote format, every page of your original PDF file becomes a PDF image, properly scaled and centered on its own slide. Although intended for presentations, you can also use it to create slides for the pages of

Overall review from MacWiz:

The application lets you do what drag/drop would do anyway. If you need your PDF's embedded as images - simply use Automator to turn the PDF pages into images, and then drop them in.

This application is more of an Automator action that saves a few steps. It's not bad, but it's not necessary, either. With Automator, you can get creative and create and save your own workflow that will (believe it or not) do exactly what this app does.

It's good to know that there is one person that doesn't need this wonderful program. I do, and it works perfectly. Giving one star because you have no idea what to use it for is just disingenuous.

Very cool, thank you for that! Just remember to read the review by NemWS here to make sure the preferences are set correctly.

Works perfectly! Make sure to select your preferred Keynote version in Preferences and then exit/relaunch to make it stick (or just remember to select iWork Keynote '09 - or whatever - when you save).

Very nicely done!

It would be fantastic, and I'd use it all the time if it wasn't for the fact that it doesn't seem to work with the latest version of Keynote. Am I wrong?

It does exactly what it says - it's great for getting resources up on the screen quickly in class.

I wish the images were automatically 'constrained' to their proportions. I usually have to mask and scale A4 portrait sized things so that they are readable at 800 x 600.
