Choosing between power and simplicity isn't an either-or proposition. The latest versions of iPhoto and Aperture now share a common photo library format, which means you can store all your photos in one central library, and then switch between the two apps as needed: use iPhoto for its simplicity and great sharing options, and Aperture for its powerful organization, image editing, and publishing features.
In this course, photographer, author, and teacher Derrick Story shows key strategies for employing both iPhoto and Aperture in a digital photography workflow. The course begins with a look at the unified photo library format and managing your library with both applications.
Next, the course examines the professional-level image editing features in Aperture and details strategies for sharing photos through slideshows and print projects, guiding you to the best application for the job at hand. It concludes with lessons on exporting photos using Aperture, managing an iCloud Photo Stream, and backing up your library.
I hope you've enjoyed what we've been talking about in this title, and I've tried to share a lot of practical stuff. But guess what, there's always more to learn especially with Aperture and iPhoto because they're very deep applications and we have more training for you. I'm here on the lynda.com home page. I'm going to go to Author, go to D and go over to Derrick Story. Here you'll see I have an Aperture 3 Essential Training over eight hours of video there and lots of good stuff and there's also iPhoto 11 Essential Training over four hours.
So, you can get more detail on some of the topics that we talked about today. I hope you take a look, I hope you learn more and I hope you find the perfect Aperture iPhoto workflow for you.
