Keynote is a great Mac application that is often ignored by users. Aside from presentations (Like that in PowerPoint), you can also maximize Keynote by using it to make professional videos! If you are interested to know how, you can check this course in Udemy on How to Quickly Create Professional Videos Using Keynote.
Why Use Keynote?
Ease. Maybe you don’t like working with Photoshop, especially if you just need to do a simple text or logo. Photoshop is a powerful editing tool for photos and creating texts and graphics, just like CorelDRAW: Graphic Design, Illustration and Technical Software, GIMP, Pixlr, and many more, but it can be complicated for beginners and people who just need to create simple logos and image/text overlays for their projects. Plus, the seconds it takes for these editing tools to open and save can take time for such a small project that you are trying to create.
No internet connection. Canva is another online tool you can use to make logos, but if you don’t have connection, this is where Keynote can be handy.
Here, you can create images or text overlays with transparent background (save as .png file) using Keynote. You can use this as watermark or text overlays for your videos and photos in iMovie or Final Cut Pro.
