Join Derrick Story for an in-depth discussion in this video Following the standard Aperture workflow, part of Aperture 2 Essential Training.
Before we go any further, I want to give you an overview of the workflow that we will be using in the Aperture.…Now Aperture actually has a way to work.…In order words, from taking you from point A, which is really having images on your memory card, to point whatever. T or F…or something where you actually doing something with those images.…I will be putting them to a printer, putting on a web page, making a slide show.…Well there is a certain set of steps that goes through it.…
These are not written in stone but they are important steps and what I am going…to show you right now are the basic concepts of the flow.…This would be the framework for the movies that we have coming up, so that you understand why I am talking…about importing now and not talking about making prints.…Because making prints actually is later; it's part of the output.…So the basic steps are this.…We are going to import our images and of course, we have the Import dialog box to do that and we can bring those images…in from a memory card, from another hard drive, even from the computer is on right now.…

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.
