Just a typo for PDF probably.

No, these are just screenshots (using Cmd-Shift-4) of part of the  
Keynote window after (1) copying the selected area in TeXShop in PDF  
format, (2) pasting in Keynote then (3) applying a shadow using the  
Graphic Inspector. PNG is the default format for screenshots in OS X  
(starting from Tiger IIRC).

All this with default settings: I did not change any setting in  
TeXShop's Preferences > Copy > Color Mapping, nor in Keynote's Graphic  
Inspector > Graphic > Shadow.

I suspect what you see results from either some preference change you  
applied in either TeXShop or Keynote, or some incompatibility between  
your versions of Keynote, TeXShop and OS X. My configuration: OS X  
10.5.2, Keynote 4.0.3, TeXShop 2.15.
