Sharing Your Slides Online

From collaborating with team members before your presentation to sharing your brilliance with the world after the fact, posting your slideshow online makes it easy for others to find your work. Keynote offers built-in tools to fast-track your presentation to the Web: Share and collect feedback at iWork.com; post a movie version of your slideshow on YouTube; or add the slideshow to your own iWeb site or blog.

And with Keynote’s media-heavy files, you’re often working with files big enough to make email servers choke. Loading your slideshow to a site like iWork.com solves both problems, providing easy file-viewing and a single location for gathering comments.
