  • PDF Conversions (Score:3, Informative)

    Hey, I already used a PowerPoint to PDF converter on those slides. It's called Keynote. ;-)

    Keynote 1.0 had that same problem. The 1.1 update improved the PDF output somewhat, but it's still a little weighty. I think they managed to include the background image once (vs. once per slide), but that's just guesswork based on how the filesize went down 5x-10x.

    The PDF files that Keynote generates are still pretty big. I'm just guessing here, but Keynote may be using TIFF for all of its images, instead of something more svelte, like PNG or JPEG.
