thought Id post some screenshots and thoughts on the iwork softwares.
for those who liked keynote 1, keynote has vast improvements from better menus and palettes to improved media handling/scaling. The toolbar also has some additions like group and ungroup and send to front or back to
your items. Keynote 2 is great.:mac:





The inspector palette/window is also better, allowing you to apply text styles across an entire document almost like a style sheet or to single slides, more transitions, better audio/video/flash support, you can add an audio track across the whole doc or just to one slide, or both, total freedom.



I havent used pages as much as keynote, but its very good so far, full M$ office compatibility all the way, charts, images, graphs, etc, no problems yet. its user interface is a lot like keynote 2's, it has lots of templates to choose from, easy to navigate in, same inspector palette as in many apple apps.

its almost like building a web page without code, just drag things to where you want them.

including a strong text layout features to change everything from font style and color to kerning and leading.

Overall, its pretty cool.

cool/ also forgot to mention a help[ful tip, if youre inserting a file from illustrator or photoshop and dont want a background, or are using transparency, it has to be a pdf or it wont work correctly.

This has been very helpful. I didn't know a lot about keynote and pages (since I don't use them, but I've looked at it). I liked seeing what I can do besides just hearing it. Thanks man.
