    I’ve got Keynote 6.1 on OS X 10.9.1, and when I save a Keynote file it ends up including stock photos, different ones depending which template I created the document from. I just create a new document in Keynote, save it, and go to the Finder and rename the file by removing the .key extension. Then the icon turn to a folder, which I can open. That folder contains a Data subfolder, which contains these 256×171 pixel photographs.

    If I use the standard Black template, the photo names include:

    If I use the standard White template, the photo names include:

    What are these pictures, why are they there, and how can I get Keynote to stop including them in my saved files?

    Can't tell you why they are there. However, you can view these files by right clicking on the Keynote presentation in Finder and under Open and Open With is something called "Show Package Contents". This will open up the keynote file to show the contents and maybe you can trawl here, should be in Data and delete the images and then go back and click on the Keynote file to open it, maybe that will remove them although the presentation may miss them and cause other issues.

    Alternatively, start a fresh new presentation and move/copy the slides across from the old presentation individually, trying to avoid the images your avoiding. Do they still appear?
