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.
One of the new goodies that we got in Aperture 3.3 is something from iPhoto. We got a goodie from iPhoto. And it's here in the Add Adjustment pop-up and is called iPhoto Effects. And once we open it, you will see that these are the effects that we have in iPhoto, therefore, the name, right? Now, in iPhoto Effects, right here in the first pop-up menu, we have some basic things, we have Black & White, Sepia.
And with Antique, we actually even get to apply how much of an effect for Antique with a slider that shows up beneath it. Then we have some other goodies, we have Matte and Vignette. Now, this vignette is not going to replace the Vignette tool that we already have in Aperture. So, this is fun but probably not going to be used very much by most folks. But this next tool, Edge Blur, look at this, that's kind of neat. I like that.
So, I am going to hang on to that, and then you have a Fade tool. So, you can really kind of play with it here. So there we go. We've applied some iPhoto Effects. I am going to hit the M key just to see where we were, and where we are now. They are right there under Add Adjustment > iPhoto Effect. There is some fun stuff in there, and you might want to take a look.
