Join Derrick Story for an in-depth discussion in this video Applying keywords, part of Aperture 2 Essential Training.
I'm going to explore keywords a little bit more.…We talked about it when we were importing images and that's a great place to add some of our foundation keywords.…For example, with this image here, on import we added boy, child, kid, son.…Same thing here, that's because those were added globally on import.…But what if I want to just fine tune my keywording a little bit more?…All these kids are the same kids here, except for this young man. So what if I wanted to add his name? I'll just select them all.…
And now I'll bring up my Keywords heads-up display.…Right here.…And let's say his name is James.…We don't have James here, so we can add him to our list, it's easy enough.…Let's add him at the top level,…there we go.…There's James.…All I have to do is take James' name,…make sure that Primary is not on,…which we're good. If we are on, that means James is only be applied to this image here, but it's not.…Click that off.…
I'm just going to take James,…drag him onto any of the images that are highlighted.…He appears here,…

Skill Level Beginner
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.
