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.
Every now and then, a picture, most likely one that you took vertically in Portrait mode, will come in sideways, wrong angle. Fortunately, there is a nice tool in Aperture to help us correct that. It's the Rotate tool. It's right down here. I'm going to mouse over this because I want you to see there are two keyboard commands also, the Bracket keys. You can use those for rotating. A lot of times when your shots come in, you'll have a bunch of them that are come in wrong. What's really nice is that you can just select a whole bunch of shots.
I click on the first one. I hold down the Shift key. I go to the End key, and then I can just use the bracket. If I use the Right Bracket, they will rotate to the right. If I use the Left Bracket, they'll rotate to the left. You can do them all at once. Now you can use the button here also, and just kind of click all the way around to what you want. I hope I'm not making you motion sickness here by doing this, but I really prefer just to use the Bracket keys.
I think it's a better way to go. So, know that all you have to do is just click on the images that you want, holding down the Shift key, Right Bracket goes to the right, Left Bracket goes to the left. You are in rotation business.
