You can now upload Keynote files to SlideShare

One of the most requested features from our users has been the direct upload of Apple Keynote files.

Today we’re enthused to announce that SlideShare now supports Keynote files too. No more saving as PDF or a Microsoft PowerPoint file just to upload to SlideShare!

Check out the slideshow below to see how it works:

All you need to do is compress your Keynote file as a ZIP and then upload that ZIP to SlideShare. It really couldn’t be simpler. :)

It has taken us a while to build this, but finally we’re there. And while we’re not completely sure of this, SlideShare might just be the first website to support the direct upload and conversion of Keynote files.

Update: Not only does this mean Keynote users can finally publish on the web. This also means that keynote users can finally download presentations FROM the web. It’s a wonderful thing to see a presentation style you like online (that has a creative commons license), download it, and remix it with your own work.

We’d love to hear any feedback, and if you have or any problems with the upload and conversion, please send a message to us from:

    Does anyone know if this is possible with an iPad running Keynote for iPad? I use a PC in my office but travel with an iPad. I can mail myself presentations from my PC to my iPad and Keynote will convert from PC PowerPoint to Keynote for iPad but it does not offer the conversion the other way round so getting work off my iPad back onto PC for use in PowerPoint is a nightmare! I have noticed that Pages does offer conversion to Word when emailing but not Keynote. I wish Apple were consistent!

    Great post, what you mentioned is basically useful to me. I agree with you anymore. I have been speaking with my buddy about, he although it’s actually attention-grabbing as well. Keep up along with your good work, I might come back to you.

    I just tried to do this, but I’m unable to upload a ZIP file. The only format I’m able to upload are PDF and PowerPoint.
