This course covers the entire photographic workflow in Apple Aperture, from import to enhancement to output. Author Derrick Story covers organizing image collections with star ratings, labels, and Smart Albums, and using the image editing tools to adjust exposure, retouch flaws, and correct color balance issues. And one of the most noteworthy features in Aperture is explored in detail: its ability to store video clips alongside the stills from digital cameras, then combine them to create stunning multimedia slideshows.
This course was updated on 10/03/12. Updated movies cover the features added through version 3.3, including Retina display support, iCloud photo sharing, streamlined integration with iPhoto, and much more.
When you first open Aperture 3 and if you have an image selected that hasn't been worked on or hasn't been imported from previous versions of Aperture, you will have, basically, a default set of Bricks here in your Adjustments Pane. But over time, you may find that there is a tool that you really like and you would like it to also show up in your default set. And what I mean by default set is every time you click on an image at least those tools are there. So, it's sort of your starting set.
So, for example, in my case, I like Edge Sharpen, and I want it part of my default set. To do that, all I have to do is first bring it in to any set, and we'll just deselect it for the moment. Then I just go to the Gear menu and I Add it to the default set. This will always be a part, no matter which image I click on, rather than Edge Sharpen has been used or not. It will always be in the set here. And if I decide that there is a brick in here that I'm not using that I want to get rid of, in the sense that I want to not have it in my default set obviously, we still want it in the pop-up menu here so we can get to it when we need it.
I just go back to the Gear, and I just go Remove from default set, and then it will be gone from the default set but always available through the Adjustments pop-up menu. So, this is a nice way to control your default view when you're working so that you have the tools you need right there.
