    I have iWork '08 and I want to know how to know how to rotate images like this. I've seen this done in some of Jobs' Keynotes as well. I really like the 3D effect it gives to slides especially when used with a reflection. Thanks!

    It's horizontal perspective you want to change but I don't think iWork can do it.

    I was able to rotate (stretch) the image in GIMP and save it as a PNG however when I add the reflection it's backwards... or I guess it is the actual reflection of that image with the perspective that it is flat and not rotated around the "z" axis. Doesn't look right.

    Any ideas?

    I changed the image on the right in photoshop then added it to keynote.

    i can't see a way of doing from within the app.

    I could take a screenshot of PowerPoint doing this, but I think there's some sort of blasphemy involved.

    It will not change perspective But You can angle any picture in Keynote.

    Inspector > Metrics to change the angle or use command and drag the curved arrow around.
    Inspector > Graphics for shadow, reflection etc.

    You can do the same in Pages.
