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.
Another online social networking site that you can publish to, directly from Aperture, is Facebook. So, if you are not a Flickr fan and you don't have MobileMe and you don't have your own web site, but you do have a Facebook page, this might be the option for you. So, I am going to publish a shot, publish this one right here, to my Facebook page. So, I just have to click on the shot itself, and then I go up to Facebook. Now, as with Flickr, if you watched the Flickr movie, you have to go through an approval process before you actually get to the screen.
And basically, what you do is you approve Aperture so that Aperture can talk directly to your Facebook page. It only takes a minute. Essentially, you have to log in again. Once you do that, then you only have to do it once, and then you get this screen right here where we are right now. I am going to create a new Album on Facebook called Outdoor Fun, because as you can tell, I like having fun outdoors. As a photographer, you know, let God do all the work, and then I just take the pictures.
Photos Viewable by Friends, Only friends, Friends of Friends, Everyone. I am pretty much an Everyone kind of guy here, and so that's all I have to do, and then I click the Publish button. And now, you'll notice down here, we have our new Facebook Album, and it also can be controlled from Aperture. This lets me know that it's published, and we have our little pop-up menu, and we should be able to visit our Facebook Gallery. Facebook is asking me to Login.
So, here we are in my Facebook page, and we have a new Album called Outdoor Fun. And we have a photo. There's my shot, directly from my Aperture Library. And then if I go to my Profile on Facebook, it actually becomes the top image on my Wall, and if I want to have this part be different on Facebook, I can actually control that by changing the Version Name in Aperture.
And then, I can Comment on my own photo and all of the good Facebook stuff that we like to do. So, Facebook is also an output option from Aperture. So, we have Flickr. We have Facebook. We have our MobileMe Gallery, and then, of course, your own web site. It's up to you. And I could continue to add to this gallery here in Aperture by dragging in images and then synchronizing.
