Join Derrick Story for an in-depth discussion in this video Backing up a project, part of Aperture 2 Essential Training.
So we've covered how to back things up with the Vault which is really cool.…But then Aperture gives you this other option for backing up just a project…and of course projects are our containers that have everything in them.…They have our master files, they have our versions, they have all of our metadata.…So, we can back up just a project by doing drag and drop.…It's very easy to do.…So what I want to do right now is I want to take my Marina project and I want…to back it up onto another FireWire drive.…Now, this is not really a back up, it could be a transfer or whatever.…
For instance, if I put on this FireWire drive and I go over to my friend's house who has Aperture,…I can connect the drive and then I could drag my project…into that person's Aperture library, and all of my work would be there.…So it's a very portable container.…I am going to show you how to do this right now.…So first thing I am going to do is, I am going to move my Project pane over to the other side because I got…to shift Aperture over a little bit, so I can do some dragging and dropping.…

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.
