Join Derrick Story for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding keywords on import, part of Aperture 2 Essential Training.
I would like to take a minute to talk about the value of adding a few keywords during the import.…The reason why this important is because you'll know that every photo that's in your Aperture library will have…at least one or two or more keywords associated with it.…If you wait until after your photos are in Aperture and say I'll keyword in a little bit, believe me you are going…to have a whole lot of photos with no keywords at all.…The problem with that is that later on when you want to find one of those of photos amidst the thousands of images…that you have in Aperture, the once that don't have keywords won't work when you do a keyword search,…so it's very important to have at least a few keywords with every photo and it's quite easy to do.…
Now we have out custom Metadata view setup here and I added Marina a little bit earlier in the previous movie…and I am going to add just a couple of more keywords.…So as I look at these images before we do any keyword we are going to just take a quick look.…

Q: Are there a way to increase the font size in Aperture?
A: Not in Aperture itself, but you can use the zoom feature built into your operating system. (Aperture is a Mac-only program, by the way.) Go to the Apple menu and open System Preferences. Choose Universal Access. Turn on Zoom under the Seeing tab. Then, in any application, you can press Shift+Cmd+Plus to zoom in and Shift+Cmd+Minus to zoom out.
We advise you do not lower the screen resolution unless it's absolutely necessary, as that approach tends to make images softer than they really are. But if your sight is very poor, the tradeoff might be worth it.
