[prMac.com] Asheville, NC - KeynotePro today is pleased to announce the introduction of Warp Series: Elevation for Keynote '09. Elevation '09 carries the aggressive modern styling of our Warp Series themes forward with controlled, ordered design that still maintains a sharp contemporary edge - floating a range of slide-spanning, staccato layouts against a subtly detailed, understated backgrounds, brought together into a design that constantly shifts the balance of foreground and background to create a sense of implied motion.
Already a crowd favorite, we wholly reconstructed the original Elevation theme for Keynote '09, producing a new generation of themes that are even easier to use and customize than the previous releases. Now built entirely with native shape objects and image placeholders, you can change the cool blue background hues to another color, gradient or photo with a simple change on the Appearance Inspector - even change the colored panels, strokes and accents on the master slides to better match your corporate palette, or create your own layout variations thanks to the ease of the new shape object approach. The Elevation '09 Master Slide pool has also expanded - up to 34 Master Slides in the Pro/HD version - including new layout options designed to make the theme even more flexible in the new Keynote '09 architecture. And all-new HD and Mobile Editions make this the most flexible Elevation release yet.
The Elevation '09 theme includes up to 34 master slides - a mix of photo and alternative text layouts - each one an object based slide, made with native keynote objects making customization a snap. Each slide features a slightly different background and content area design specific to the slide. We have also included Blank Stage masters so that you can easily create layouts that meet your specific needs. Elevation' 09 HD, available exclusively in the Elevation '09 Pro and Pro Mobile Editions, expands the style into HD format with aspect-optimized 16:9 and 16:10 versions of the Elevation '09 design.
The Elevation '09 EP Edition themes - included in the Elevation '09 Pro Mobile Edition is built to take the Elevation style to the iPhone/iPod Touch or classic-format video-capable iPod in a format optimized for small-screen viewing. Elevation '09 EP Edition for classic-format video iPods includes 31 complete Master Slides: a wide range of text and photo-oriented designs cross-optimized for iPod and television display. Elevation '09 EP Edition for iPhone/iPod Touch includes an expanded 33 Master Slide base of the HD themes, optimized for viewing on the iPhone or iPod Touch's larger, HD-leaning display.
