Don't be too literal and cheesy with your choice of images. Use photos or illustrations that are simple but snappy, relevant to your keynote's concept and are not too complex and heavy in terms of design composition.

This leaves a lasting impression on your audience and persuades them to follow your call to action. Additionally, backing up your final statement with aesthetic design can enhance its impact. It's also important to ensure that any supporting visuals, such as charts and graphs, are appealing and accessible to your audience. This helps maintain consistency and control over visual elements.

Application

Aaron Weyenberg, TED's in-house presentation expert, shared 10 tips for making presentations that really communicate your idea. Here they are:

  1. Weyenberg suggests thinking about slides last – "Building your slides should be the tail end of developing your presentation. Think about your main message, structure its supporting points, practice it and time it – and then start thinking about your slides," he says.
  2. The look and feel of your presentation should be consistent – Each slide of your deck should feel like part of the same story. This includes not only your verbal and textual content, but also typography, colors and imagery across your presentation.
  3. Be mindful of topic transitions, Weyenberg says – Consistency is important, but making each slide look exactly the same will make the presentation boring. "I like to create one style for the slides that are the meat of what I'm saying, and then another style for the transitions between topics," he shares.
  4. When it comes to text, less is more – Text-heavy slides will tire your audience out and divide their attention between what they're reading and what they're hearing. If you can't avoid including text-heavy slides, try to progressively reveal text.
  5. Photos should enhance the meaning of your slide – "I love using simple, punchy photos in presentations because they help what you're saying resonate in your audience's mind without pulling their attention from your spoken words. Look for photos that (1) speak strongly to the concept you're talking about and (2) aren't compositionally complex. Your photo could be a metaphor or something more literal, but it should be clear why the audience is looking at it, and why it's paired with what you're saying," Weyenberg says.
  6. Effects and transitions need to be smooth – Keynote slides offer many effects and transitions. But in Weyenberg's opinion, these effects "subtly suggest that the content of your slides is so uninteresting that a page flip or droplet transition will snap the audience out of their lethargy." To avoid this, use the most subtle options and ensure the effects are consistent throughout.
  7. Control your audience's attention – For example, if there is a need to highlight something in a photo, you could add a big arrow.
  8. Large images need to be panned – Weyenberg says: "Often, I want to show a screenshot of an entire web page in my presentations. There's a great Chrome extension to capture these—but these images are oftentimes much longer than the canvas size of the presentation. Rather than scaling the image to an illegible size, or cropping it, you can pan it vertically as you talk about it." In Keynote, this can be accomplished with a "Move" effect.
  9. Avoid autoplay in the video – It's super easy to insert video in Keynote by dragging and dropping a Quicktime file onto the slide. So set the video to "Click to play" to have more control over the video start time.
  10. Keep your charts and graphs simple – An image of a chart almost always disrupts the general feel of a deck, Weyenberg says, but if the graph data is not complex, there's a way to make it much easier on the eyes by redrawing it in the native presentation application. Despite the fact that this might sound like a needless extra step, it will help to make your presentation feel consistent and perfectly thought-through.

Text-heavy slides can have a negative impact on the audience's attention during a presentation. They can tire the audience out and divide their attention between what they're reading and what they're hearing. This can lead to information overload and make it harder for the audience to absorb and retain the information being presented. It's generally recommended to keep slides simple and use them to support your spoken content, rather than duplicating it.

Transitions between topics in a presentation can be effectively managed by creating a distinct style for the transition slides. This helps to signal a change in topic to the audience. However, it's important to maintain a consistent look and feel throughout the presentation to ensure that each slide feels like part of the same story. This includes maintaining consistency in verbal and textual content, typography, colors, and imagery across the presentation. Additionally, avoid making each slide look exactly the same as this can make the presentation boring.

Slides in a keynote presentation serve multiple purposes. They act as a visual aid to support the speaker's points, helping to engage the audience and reinforce key messages. They should be thought of as the tail end of developing your presentation, after the main message and its supporting points have been structured. Each slide should feel like part of the same story, maintaining consistency in typography, colors, and imagery. However, to avoid monotony, different styles can be used for topic transitions. Slides should not be text-heavy as it can tire the audience and divide their attention.
