Extracting Previously Embedded Media Files in Keynote

[twocol_one]You may have used a certain image, music or video in a previous Keynote presentation but you might no longer have access to that media to use it on your current project. If you still have the Keynote presentation that contains that specific media, you can reach out to that individual file. Here is how:

  1. Locate the original Keynote that contains the media file you want access to.
  2. Duplicate the Keynote file (Command +D)
  3. Add the “.zip” extension to the newly duplicated Keynote file. (When prompted if you are sure, select “Use .zip”)
  4. You will see the Keynote file magically turn into a zipped file.
  5. Uncompress the zipped file by double clicking. This will create a new folder with the same name, housing all the files you used in the presentation, as well as some Keynote specific system files.

Voila! All the media files should be in a subfolder called DATA, where your favorite music, image and video files await for you.[/twocol_one]
