iPresentee, Keynote Pro, Divine Fiat launch themes
Keynote users have seven new themes to work with, from three different companies. iPresentee has released Keynote Motion Themes 7.0, with five new themes. These include Backsight, Techno, Brown Target, Green Breeze and Dancing Bubbles; each ships with 15 master slide layouts and moving background graphics. They require iWork '08 or '09, and cost $25 together or $10 separately.
Keynote Pro has released Fuse* AC+DC, a motion theme in two opposing color schemes -- one features vibrant color, while the other is muted and sedate. The Fuse* theme uses kinetic motion with support for images, text, tables and charts. It includes 31 master slides, with a mix of traditional content and photo-driven styles. The theme is available in standard and high-definition versions for $25 and $35 respectively. A mobile edition with iPhone support is $50. Fuse* requires iWork '09.
Divine Fiat has launched Photogenic Redux, a 35mm lens-styled theme. It uses white text on a black background, with a photo-realistic SLR lens icon. It has variable-sized media holders, and is usable in seven ratios with 11 text layouts and 100 photo layouts. Theme sizes range up to 1920 pixels in length. Requirements include Mac OS X 10.4, Keynote 4.0 or 5.0, and the Helvetica Neue Light font. The add-on costs $26.
