Join Derrick Story for an in-depth discussion in this video Goodbye, part of Aperture 2 New Features.
I could go on and on about Aperture 2.0, but I'm going to stop right now because I want you to have a chance to play with it too.…We've covered lots of things.…The image editing tools alone are worth this upgrade.…Quick Preview, so that you can work faster.…The new RAW decode 2.0, you've definitely got to take a look at that and see how the sample images look.…You can flip between 2.0 and 1.1, and then little by little, start bringing in some of your images and playing with them.…Now I don't recommend that you bring in your whole existing Aperture library right away.…
Take some time to get to know this application.…Play with the same projects.…Maybe bring in a few of your images and just enjoy learning about the tools and figure out how they work and so forth.…Once you feel comfortable with Aperture 2.0, then you can begin to migrate your library into it.…Now up the road, lynda.com will have an essential training for Aperture 2.0, and we'll be able to dig in even deeper to a lot of these features…and plus stuff I didn't have time to talk about in this title, but until then, I hope you enjoy this application.…

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.
