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 that's it, we made it together. We have completed this course. I sure hope you got a lot out of all of these movies. I know I enjoyed putting them together for you. Now before we go, I have a few words of advice for you, and that is practice, practice, practice. The more you practice these techniques, the more natural they will become. And I would even go so far as to recommend that you put together a shoot, take a lot of pictures, and then see those pictures all the way through in Aperture 3.
Make these techniques natural so that when you want to work quickly, you can. You'll be efficient, and you'll enjoy doing it, it's a lot of fun. Once you are comfortable with the application, I think you're really going to have a lot of fun improving your pictures. Now if you forget how to do a specific technique, remember, I'm here for you, right? These movies are here, and you can come back and watch them as needed, and Apple has also included a very nice help right within Aperture. I'll show it to you right now. Just go up here to Help > Aperture Help, they keep it updated. It's a living, breathing document.
See, it's loading the very latest as I speak, and you can see the different categories that we have here. So this is a nice reference that's built right into the application. Okay, well, I think that's going to do it for me. I'm going to go take some pictures and run them through Aperture 3, and I hope you do the same. Bye, bye now.
