We have a number of pretty interesting effects in iPhoto and in Aperture.…Now, people don't realize they have those effects in Aperture also.…I'll give you a tour of them quickly here in iPhoto and then we'll hop over to…Aperture and I'll show you where they are located there also.…We've already seen black and white, and that's a fun effect. That's just a one…click like that and you click on it again to turn it off.…We also have Sepia, and Antique.…All nice! Now, with Antique, you see that we have the number come up which means…that we can continue clicking to enhance the effect.…
You can click back. You decide you don't like it, just go back to None right down here.…We have a matte which I'm not really crazy about this.…It doesn't do much for me so we'll go back to None there.…Same thing with the Vignette, I think the Vignette is better in Aperture.…This is a little harsh for me.…I'll go back to None.…I love Edge Blur though and I think Edge Blur is very cool. Look at that.…Isn't that a neat effect?…
