Join Derrick Story for an in-depth discussion in this video Customizing the Adjustments tab, part of Aperture 2 Essential Training.
By now after working with all these different adjustments in Aperture,…there are probably some that you like a lot and some that you are not so crazy about.…If you happened to have one of those you are not so crazy about,…here in your default set,…you can remove it…and there is something that you love that's up here in the plus menu, you can add it to your default set.…I am going to show you how to do that right now.…Let's say that you are not such a big Highlights & Shadows kind of person.…So you can just click on the Gear menu,…go Remove from Default Set,…let's click here and click back…and you'll see that it's gone.…
Now you still have access to it,…it's up here, right?…So you can always bring it back if you want.…You have just taken it out of your default set.…Now on the other hand, you just love Edge Sharpen…and you think it's one of the most wonderful things on the entire planet.…Go to the plus menu,…add Edge Sharpen,…click Add to Default Set,…and now it's part of our Default Set. I'll click somewhere else,…

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.
