Join Derrick Story for an in-depth discussion in this video Importing iPhoto libraries, part of Aperture 2 Essential Training.
In an earlier movie, I showed you how to import images from a digital camera and we walked…through the entire import process from top to bottom.…However, you may want to bring in images from an iPhoto library also. That basic process applies,…so if you have any questions about all those details, make sure that you review importing images form a digital camera.…Right now, what I am going to do is show you how to change the source, so that you can bring in images from iPhoto…and still have all those same benefits that you had before.…
Now I am going to go up instead of just going to the regular Import arrow here, I am going to go up to File…and go to Import here because there are more options.…Now if you are bringing in images from an iPhoto library,…you may be tempted to choose this option right here, but actually I don't recommend it.…And the reason being is that it will bring in all of the images from your iPhoto Library…and that could be a whole bunch and quite honestly some of that could stuff you just don't want to bring…

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.
