All FreeBibleimages files you download will start with the prefix FB_ (FB followed by an underscore then the name of the story).
By default, modern web browsers save files to the Downloads folder under your user account. Click on the Finder at the bottom left of the screen (the leftmost icon in the Dock). Click on Downloads on the left side of the screen under Favorites. Recently downloaded files will appear in the list.
You can also go to the Finder menu at the top of the screen and from the Go menu choose Downloads. Alternatively, the right side of the dock has its own Downloads option, to the immediate left of the Trash icon. Tap the Downloads icon to fan out a menu of all of the items you’ve recently downloaded.
Click the Downloads icon (a downwards pointing arrow) in the title bar of Safari. You will see a list of downloaded files. Locate the FreeBibleimages downloaded file with the prefix FB_ then select the round Magnification icon to view the file in its location on your computer.
Spotlight can be accessed from anywhere on the Mac by pressing Command + Spacebar to bring up Spotlight. Type FB_ to locate a downloaded FreeBibleimages file. Alternatively, click on the Finder at the bottom left of the screen (the leftmost icon in the Dock). You can then either click on the Magnification icon (top right) in the menu bar to access Spotlight or in the File menu select Find.
PowerPoint files can be opened with PowerPoint for Mac, OpenOffice (and derivatives NeoOffice, LibreOffice, and Oracle Office), Apple Keynote, and Google Docs. To find which applications are available to you, right-click the PowerPoint file in Finder and select Open With. Alternatively, if you are using Mac OS 10.5 or later, then you can select the PowerPoint file by clicking it once, then tapping the spacebar to open it in Quick View.
If you double-click on a PowerPoint file and it does not open in the application you want, go to the Finder and Right-click (or Control-click) the file. Select Get Info and in the resulting screen choose Open With. Set this to PowerPoint and click Change All.
If you do not have PowerPoint for Mac, then download a PDF version of the FreeBibleimages story instead. If you have Apple Keynote, you can download a Keynote presentation instead of PowerPoint.
In PowerPoint go to the SlideShow menu and choose either the Play From Start or Play From Current Slide option. You can advance your slides using the space bar on your keyboard, the Right Arrow key, or by Left-clicking your mouse button. Press the Left Arrow key to go back a slide.
If you press the B key while your PowerPoint slide is showing, the screen will go black (or Press W to make it white). This is useful if you need to digress or move the focus of attention back to the presenter. When you are ready to move on, just press the same key again (B or W) and the image reappears.
To end your presentation before reaching the end of your slides, press the Escape key on your keyboard or Right-click on your presentation slide and choose End Show.
By default PDF files open in the Mac Preview Application. If you have Adobe PDF Viewer or Adobe Acrobat you can open these applications and then choose Open from the File menu and locate the PDF you wish to open. To change the default application that opens PDF files, Right-click (or Control-click) the file. Select Get Info and in the resulting screen choose Open With. Set this to the desired software and click Change All.
If viewing the PDF in Preview, choose either SlideShow or Enter Full screen from the View menu. If viewing the file in Adobe PDF Viewer or Adobe Acrobat you can select Full Screen Mode from the View menu (or use Command-F). Use the right arrow key to advance through the images and the left arrow key to go back. Use the Escape key to get out of Full Screen or SlideShow mode.
You will need to have the Apple Keynote application or the Apple Keynote app on your mobile device to open and edit files. If you do not have Keynote, run the Preview Application on your computer and choose Open from the File menu then locate the Keynote file. Alternatively you can locate a Keynote file, then press the spacebar to open it in Quick View.
When a file is open in the Keynote application press the Play icon to show the current slide. Holding down the Alt key as you press Play will run the presentation from the first slide. Alternatively go to the Play menu and choose Play SlideShow. Advance to the next slide by pressing the Right or Down Arrow keys or go back a slide by pressing the Left or Up Arrow keys. You can also use the Spacebar or Right Bracket key to advance slides. When in SlideShow mode press the Question Mark key to view other options you have when viewing a presentation. Press the same key to remove this list.
Press the Play Arrow icon to start a SlideShow. Tap the screen once to advance to the next slide. Alternatively, swipe the screen from right to left to advance the slides and from left to right to go back.
Double-click the zip file and the file or folder will be decompressed into the same folder the compressed file is in. The new decompressed item will have the same name as the original file.
