Create a presentation

1. Open Keynote.

2. The theme chooser will open and you can choose the theme that you want.  The theme you choose now is not extremely important as you can change it later if you would like with the theme tool from within Keynote.  *Note* You can change the slide size for your presentation at this time.  This is located in a drop-down menu underneath the “Choose” button on the theme chooser window.

3. You will see and can begin editing your first slide.  Add new slides by clicking the  sign near the top left corner of the window.

4. Save your presentation.

5. You have now created a Keynote presentation.
