Adding a shot of a website to a Keynote presentation!

This is a great tip submitted by Dominic P. Tremblay: Adding a shot of a website to a Keynote presentation! This is really something that when I first saw it, it convinced me of how superior Keynote is to PowerPoint. Okay, the truth is that you can easily take a screenshot with easy OS X shortcuts and bring it into Power Point or Keynote. But that is long, you'll end up with an additional file on the desktop (it really adds up when you take a lot of screenshots) and the website in your Keynote presentation won't update automatically. The other way of doing that only works with Keynote and it is that Keynote actually loads the website into your presentation. You're then sure that your Keynote presentation will stay up-to-date no matter when you show it. Even if you don't have internet access, it will simply show the latest downloaded version. To do it, you simply have to drag the small icon that is on the left side of the url in your web browser to the Keynote presentation. It unfortunately only works in Safari and Camino. Firefox will simply display the url in the presentation. You can really see more precisely how it is done in this video screenshot:

Thanks for the tip Dominic!

A great tip, but I prefer the "old-fashioned" way (apple-shift-4) as I can get a greater part of the web-site on the Keynote screen

Don't forget that (apple-control-shift-4) allows you to copy a screen shot to the clipboard so you don't have to clutter your desktop with files.

Great ! I notice as well that we can resize the image block to show more or less of the web page. It seems to crop or expand without affecting the image proportion. Well done! Thanks for the tip.

This doesnt work, Keynote just adds a hyperlink and no webpage. What am I doing wrong, this is driving me crazy!
