Edit an image in Keynote on iPad
After you add a photo or graphic to your presentation, you can crop it and remove parts you don’t want.
Mask (crop) a photo
You can hide unwanted portions of an image without modifying the image file.
Double-tap the image.
The mask controls appear. The default mask is the same size as your image.
Use the controls to frame just the parts of the image you want to be visible.
Tap Done when you’ve finished.
Double-tap the image at any time to readjust its mask.
Remove the background or a colour from a photo
You can remove a background or colour from an image with the Remove Background tool.
Tap the image to select it, then tap Remove Background (you may have to tap first).
If possible, the background is automatically removed.
Do any of the following:
Remove another colour: Drag over the colour you want to remove.
As you drag, the mask selection grows to include areas that use similar colours.
Undo all changes: Tap Reset in the controls.
To work with multiple images at the same time, touch and hold one image, then tap the other images with another finger.
