Join Derrick Story for an in-depth discussion in this video Building a web page, part of Aperture 2 Essential Training.
Another terrific output option that we have in Aperture for lovely images is to create web pages and we have a lot…of flexibility in how those web pages look.…So I thought I create one for you right now and let you see all the tools that we have to do that.…I started out by creating an album and I think an album is a good way to go…that contains the images that I want to put in my Web Page.…Of course, the advantage to an album for a Web Page is very similar to the advantage of using an album to create a book,…in that you can organize your images beforehand and you can change your mind later in the Web Page…but it's really easier to get things done now.…
Once I have the album the way that I want, I'll just make sure nothing is selected,…that way Aperture knows to take all of the images.…I go up to New and I choose Web Page.…Very quickly, Aperture builds a sample Web Page for me, at least the starting point…where I can take it from there adding my own choices.…First thing I'm going to do is I'm going to change the theme to black.…

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.
