    OK, I've got a scientific conference coming up soon where I'll be presenting a poster. I'm too lazy to actually do any work- so my plan is to convert a Keynote talk that I give into a poster. Can Keynote do this- i.e. arrange all the pages into one big poster file?

    Can anyone provide a link to a web-page containing information- or give me any other advice? Would it be best to import the talk into Pages?

    Thanks in advance.

    I'm not sure how you'd do that in Keynote.

    I've created many poster-size posters in Powerpoint, but not by "placing" many slides onto one large background (though that would be hugely useful). Instead I created a huge background (4' by 6') then added text boxes, figures, charts, etc. It was all essentially one slide.

    But since you want the lazy route ;) , may I recommend converting your slide show into separate images then importing them into a page layout program. I've used OmniGraffle for this, to great success, and there's even an article on how to do this here.

    Good luck on your presentation, and don't forget your handouts.
