Cool Graphics

Okay, I'm putting together a Keynote presentation, and I want to make it really beautiful. Are there any nice looking graphics that I can get for free? Does anyone have any graphics I can use? Thanks.

Less is more. Dont use graphics on it unless they are part of the content of the presentation.

Look at Steves keynotes. Nothing but type and pics.

Yeah, I mean, the graphics should be relevent to the content. I'm not talking about totally decking out each slide, just a bit of eye candy that will back up what I have to say.

Well, I'm going to be talking about math, video editing and animation, podcasting, books, college, history, plus a bit more that I still need to work in. I know, it's a very diverse selection of topics, this presentation is for school, and we have to present all our work so far this year.

Actully, if your curious about my school you can check out www.themetschool.org

if you are presenting your own work, then you should have no extraneous graphics to distract from it. let the content be the primary thing, not some found clipart.

and i am familiar with the Met, as i work in providence.

Well, any suggestions on how to make a presentation that will just blow people away? I have a reputation to keep here.

from a visual standpoint, simple and clear does it best.

Hmm, looks interesting. I'll also watch an old Stevenote later, I'm more of a visual learner.

Thanks everyone for the help.
