I'm using an Apple Keynote to do a bit of graphics and I'd like to export that to a PNG file with a transparent background.

Any idea on how to do this? I was thinking of exporting do .pdf (which is a vector format) and then somehow changing the PDF background to transparent, but I don't know whether this is possible and how...

Here is what I finally did:

  1. I exported the slides into .pdf
  2. I opened the .pdf file in Adobe Illustrator
  3. I removed the background in the Adobe Illustrator
