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.
Heads-up displays are very handy, especially when you are working in full-screen mode because they give you the tools that you need right where you need them. So let's go to full-screen mode right now and let me give you just a quick tour of how to control these handy displays. So first thing I'm going to do is I am going to hit the F key. And then we hit the V key, and here we are in full-screen mode. Now the most common heads-up display is the Inspector and you hit the H key to bring that up. Now the Inspector has three different areas, Library, Metadata, and Adjustments.
Now you can just click on the tabs to move among them, but you can also hit the W key and that will toggle between the three different tabs. When you're done with that Inspector you can just hit the H key again and it goes away. Now you also have a Keywords heads-up display and you just hold down the Shift key, hit the H key and there is your keywords heads up display, so you can work on that in just about any area of the application, and then hit Shift+H again.
Now the third heads-up display that I want to show you is very handy and we're going to drill down into its use in some other movies, but it's the Lift & Stamp heads-up display. I'm going to do Shift+ Command+C to bring that up. Now the cool thing about Lift & Stamp, it allows us to apply all sorts of different types of changes to a batch of images that we have selected. So for instance, if you get one image in a series image-edited just the way that you want, you can lift those adjustments right here and then select a whole bunch of other images and stamp those changes to those images, so it's a very handy display.
You can also do that with metadata, and so having a heads-up display for this I think is very useful. Now when you're done using the Lift & Stamp, you can't use the keyboard command again to get rid of it. You have to go up to the X to turn it off. So three very useful heads up display. The commands for them are quite simple. Again H for the Inspector, Shift+H for the Keywords, and Shift+Command+C for Lift & Stamp, and then of course you just click the X when you're done.
