Join Derrick Story for an in-depth discussion in this video Exporting masters and versions, part of Aperture 2 Essential Training.
So we now have a lot of images in our Aperture Library.…But every now and then you?re going to want to take something out.…And you can take out images in a couple of different ways.…You can export the Master, for instance, in the case of this RAW file right here…and we can see that's a RAW file by the .CR2.…You may want to just take that RAW file out complete and work with it somewhere else, may be in another application,…or if you've done some work on that RAW file, you may want to send out a version of it and have all…of your image edits apply to that version when you export it.…
So you have a couple of different things here.…I am going to show you how they both work.…Let's start with just exporting a Master file.…So I am going to right-click on it, we'll go to Export and we are going to export our Master.…Now this is pretty easy, we'll put it in a Pictures folder…because after all it's a picture and it's a logical place to put it.…I could create a sub-folder if I wanted, but I am not going to, we're just going to put it loose in the Pictures folder.…

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.
