    Hi.
    I'm new to this forum, in fact I'm new to Apple and Mac based computing. I've always been a PC guy but felt it was time to change. I'm very impressed with the look and feel of Apple products, fresh, clear and intuitive are a few words I would use.
    However I could do with some assistance. It's not a specific 'help' request I have it's more a kind of 'how would you do it' type of question.

    Like I said I have always been a PC, and as you know all files are easily loaded on to pc's via the USB slots or data drives etc.
    I'm putting together a 'keynote' presentation of my wife's childhood to show at her 40th birthday. There will be photos, sound clips, video and messages of goodwill from friends and family but I'm not sure of the best way of getting all that stuff on here.
    How would you do it?
    Any advice you could offer would be much appreciated.
    I hope my first post on here followed all the rules.
    Thank you again.

    You can't add audio or video in Keynote itself, but Keynote can play .ppt or .pptx files that contain embedded audio and video. So you'll need to put those components of the presentation in on your PC.
