Extract images and movies from a Keynote presentation Apps
any people will be frustrated to no end trying to drag an image out of Keynote onto the desktop or other folder (which you would expect to be able to do), so as to reuse that image in another presentation. Here's an alternative.

Go to the Keynote presentation in the Finder and Control-click on the file ... scroll to Show Package Contents and voila, there are your images and movies, etc. This will be nothing new to those familiar with Packages, but perhaps useful to those who don't know how Keynote (and Pages) keeps its files together. Copy those that you need to use to a new folder, and you're done.

So instead of resorting to taking screen captures, or using the Export feature in Keynote, just take a look at the package file in the Finder.

Extract images and movies from a Keynote presentation

Keynote has become my primary vector-graphics program for quick diagrams: to save those into files, I make frequent use of Preview's "New from Clipboard" feature. This wouldn't work with movies, but for photos it might be a quicker alternative to opening the package.

Extract images and movies from a Keynote presentation

This is a good, free way to do this, but there is a software-based alternative that I just discovered called File Juicer (http://echoone.com/filejuicer/). It's $14.95, but quickly extracts all kinds of images/movies from Keynote (as well as other file types like PDF) and puts them in folders by file type. It did an 11MB Keynote file in about 10-15 seconds. A Keynote presentation over 1GB in size with large images/movies took about 10 minutes.

a while ago, i posted very similar hint: Extract pictures from Word documents via Pages. it's the only way i found to get back pictures from word, in their original size, uncropped.
