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.
A lot of photographers are using their iPhone and their iPad for their photography work, and sometimes creating some very nice stuff on their mobile apps, and wouldn't it be nice to get some of that into your Aperture library. Well, you can. The main thing that you have to do on your iPhone or iPad is save the image. Regardless if you're using iPhoto for iOS or whatever you're using, save the image to the Camera Roll, the Camera Roll is very important. Once the image is in the Camera Roll on your mobile device, connect it to your computer here, open Aperture, and then go up to the Import button.
And what you'll see is that your device-- your mobile device--will show up there with all of the images currently on the Camera Roll. Now we just want to bring one in right now, so I'm going to uncheck all. I just want to bring in this shot of the fichus. Eventually, it's going to end up in our Flowers project, but we have one step in between. So we're going to make sure it's in our Aperture library here. And it's telling us down here, it's going to bring one file into a new project named May 07, 2011.
Okay, that's very technical sounding. So we're going to import right now. There we go. We're going to keep the item, as I mentioned in an earlier movie. You now have the option in Aperture 3.3 to either keep the item or delete it off the iPad. We're just going to keep it for the moment. And now right here, here is our image in a new project called May 07, 2011, which isn't even when I took that shot, so I'm not exactly sure where that date came from.
So pay no attention to the label of the project. What I want is I want that photo here in flowers, so I'm just going to drag it right over here to flowers. Now you notice it's no longer here, it's now here-- probably there it is right there. There it is right there. So now I can get rid of this project right here, I am going to right click on it, I am going to delete the project, it's gone, and I have successfully brought an image in from my iPad into my Aperture library.
There is a lot of great stuff that we're creating out there, and we want to get some of it on our computer. This is the most straightforward way to do it.
