Hello Sir/Madam. Thank you very much for giving us an opportunity to help you. I am Jins here to assist you. Please remember these things when we deal with your issue. It may take more than one step/answer to solve a problem. So If my answers don’t work or if you are not satisfied, please don’t Rate my answer as Bad or Poor Service, but please Reply back to me by clicking the “Continue Conversation” or “Reply” button and I will gladly continue to help. Remember, only Rate answer after you are 100% Satisfied. Please do not rate an answer, if you are not satisfied.

Make sure, there is enough image resolution (I like to recommend 300) When resolution decreases image quality decreases. The way to change image resolution in Keynote is: Inspector > Document > Document > and select Custom from the Slide Size drop down menu. Now export the drawings and check the result.

Regards

Jins

I want to have the exported drawing as "layer" without the background, for example how can i export the shapes from keynotes as png, not the whole screen?
Mac Support Specialist: Jins M. N., Computer Hardware Engineer replied 2 years ago

Try this: Copy the image in Keynote, you can then open Preview and select "New from Clipboard" to paste the image, and save it as a PDF. That will preserve the transparency. If you have Adobe Photoshop or illustrator,, open that PDF on it and save as PNG.

If you do not have Photoshop or illustrator, follow below steps:

Download and install the free public beta of the App Skitch from http://plasq.com/skitch , Copy your artwork from Keynote, Paste into Skitch then set it's background to transparent. Export the image from there and check the result.

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
