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.
Well, we have yet another way to organize our images. We've been working with stars, we have color labels and we also have flags. Flags are new and I love them because they're a great way to say I want to pick this image, this image and this image, and just separate them from everything else. We have a few ways to flag an image. You notice that when I wave over the thumbnail here, a little outline of a flag appears and I can just click right there. That turns on that flag, and I can click again to turn it off, or I could choose the image and hit flag over here.
That's another way to do it or I could use the slash and we're talking about the Slash key that's below the Question Mark and next to the Shift key. That will flag an image also. So easy ways to do it. Actually this is one of those instances where just hitting the little flag icon I think works great. So let's say I'm going to flag this shot, I'm going to flag this shot, we'll come down here, and I'll flag this shot. So those are three shots in this particular project that I happen to like a lot.
Now what's so fun about this is that I can go up here and just choose Flagged and boom! There they are, just like that, and I can work with those shots and do anything that I want and then when I'm done of course I can just come back to Unrated or Better. Flagging is a very nice way just to call out a couple of shots for any particular reason. Usually they'll be shots that you like a lot or maybe they're shots that you want to share with a client. They show up in all of the Search tools that you have in Aperture, and they're easy to apply, easy to take off. Why not use them? I mean, I can't even think of a reason why I wouldn't want to use flags.
Plus they look cute. They're orange! I mean how much better than that does it get?
