06 Feb 2006
iPresent It works with Keynote 3 (iWork ‘06) and iPhoto 6 (iLife ‘06) and is now a Universal application.
There are also a couple of minor bug fixes and enhancements.
01 Dec 2005
Fixed a problem whereby the original presentation may be deleted when performing a drag and drop one-time conversion of a presentation.
28 Nov 2005
Improved image quality by ensuring that TIFF images are used both on the iPod and for all image processing.
Added an OS X print dialog Save As PDF menu item so any document can be converted into a slideshow for presenting via an iPod.
You can now drag and drop presentation documents onto iPresent It (or its Dock icon) for one-time conversion into a slideshow.
Added a time remaining estimate when processing images.
Fixed a problem with the processing of large PowerPoint presentations.
A number of minor bug fixes and enhancements.
30 Apr 2005
Added Tiger compatibility.
11 Apr 2005
Added a separate preferences sheet and moved the save location to it.
Added a preference for turning off image optimization (scaling). iPresent It optimizes images for display on standard televisions and 800x600 projectors. You would want to turn off this optimization if, for example, you have a 1024x768 presentation that you will show on a 1024x768 projector (so the optimization isn’t required). Another possibility would be for putting a presentation on a PSP, which does its own scaling, rotating, etc. for you (it may not have video output but the screen is great for reviewing a presentation or reading a PDF document).
Added a preference for including builds with Keynote 2 (so you can turn off separate images for each build step).
Improved PDF processing so that we can more reliably extract page images.
Fixed Keynote 2 processing so that it works with non-English versions of Keynote and OS X.
The usual minor bug fixes.
24 Mar 2005
Revamped and optimized PDF processing.
Fixed file management issues when processing PowerPoint presentations (that only
occurred under very specific and rare situations).
24 Feb 2005
Keynote 2 support improved to handle a variety of Keynote configurations.
PowerPoint support improved to allow for international versions of PowerPoint and OS X.
Reduced the need for restarting Keynote 2. Restarts are only required if the export settings don’t match iPresent It’s requirements (i.e. if you never change them Keynote will retain iPresent It’s settings).
Minor user interface tweaks to ensure menu items are updated correctly.
02 Feb 2005
Full Keynote 2 support and verified compatibility with iPhoto 5 (which is supported by all versions of iPresent It). Please see the iPresent It Help section on Keynote for important information regarding Keynote 2 support.
Keynote 2 support includes support for builds. Each build step of a slide is converted into a unique image for displaying via your iPod photo.
iPresent It now supports high resolution presentations such as 1024x768 Keynote presentations and 300dpi PowerPoint slides (see the iPresent It Help for details on how to obtain high resolution PowerPoint slides).
iPresent It will track modifications to presentations to indicate (with bullets) which presentations need updating on your iPod photo. See the screenshot for an example of how it looks.
You can now select multiple presentations to generate slideshows for a subset of the presentations.
07 Dec 2004
Keynote processing is now built-in.
Improved image quality for both PowerPoint and Keynote presentations.
Added support for PowerPoint X in addition to 2004.
