Create a series of Keynote slides from a set of images Apps
I was surprised to find out this morning that there is an easy way to make a series of slides in Keynote from a group of images in the Finder.

From the Finder, simply highlight the images you want to import to Keynote and drag them to the Navigator window along the left edge of the presentation. (You may have to set your View mode to Navigator (e.g. Keynote » View » Navigator) first). Each image then appears centered within a separate slide. Voila!

Does anybody know how to do the same with the pages from a multipage PDF?

That is, How can I create a keynote slide show in which each page from a PDF is one slide?
If the PDF page would be scaled to fit the slide, that would be great;)

Use the program "Pdf to Keynote" (http://www.cs.hmc.edu/~oneill/freesoftware/pdftokeynote.html), it's exactly what you're looking for and works very well.

Slideshow From PDF File

The Preview app can show your PDF file as a slideshow 1 page at a time. Its not keynote but it might get you what your looking for.

Look under the view menu in the Preview app. Then choose slideshow.

I use this a lot. Depending on the source material the image may appear small. If you mouse over the image a set of controls will appear near the center bottom of the screen. One of them will force the images to full screen size. I found this to be very helpful.
