Join Derrick Story for an in-depth discussion in this video Generating PDFs, part of Aperture 2 Essential Training.
Not only do we have a lot of Custom options when we are creating our artwork, our posters,…our postcards in this case, we also have a lot of options for outputting them.…We can print to a printer as I talked about before,…but we have some wonderful PDF options too that I would like to show you.…Now before I go to the Print dialog box, which is where those PDF options are stored,…I want to remind you of one thing; before you go over there, just make a note on where your postcard is located here…in this layout because you don't want to print the whole thing, you don't want to print a bunch of blank pages…in your PDF, you just want to print this one page here.…
And also, in a PDF way of thinking of things, this is page 7 not page 6 even though it says 6 here…because we have a blank page up here.…So, remember that page 7 that's where our postcard is.…Alright, now we are safe to go over to PDF land.…I am going to click on the Print button, and right here, we have the PDF pop-up menu and we have all sorts of options.…

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.
