Join Derrick Story for an in-depth discussion in this video Adjusting the time and date, part of Aperture 2 Essential Training.
Aperture allows us to adjust the date and time when we upload our images, …and sometimes we forget to do that. And so then we're looking in our library and we see that clearly we had screwed up.…We had left our time-stamp incorrect on our camera.…In this case, for an example, this was a East Coast shot but it's time-stamped West Coast shot…and I need to make an adjustment.…Well, I get a second chance at it. All I have to do is make sure the image is selected,…I go up to Metadata,…I choose Adjust Date and Time.…
We're going to go to East Coast now, we're going to move it ahead three hours.…We're going to make sure that we also change the master file because wrong is wrong.…We want everything corrected…Click Adjust,…and just like that our image date has been corrected.…So the easiest way to go of course is to make sure that your time-stamp in your camera is set correctly.…But for those times when you travel or daylight savings happens and you don't make the change,…you get a second chance in Aperture, either when you are uploading the images…

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.
