Join Derrick Story for an in-depth discussion in this video Importing images from a digital camera, part of Aperture 2 Essential Training.
In this movie I am going to import a whole bunch of images from our memory card into Aperture.…I am going to start up by going up here to Import and I have my memory card reader connected with photos on it,…but I don't want to import them into Seashore.…This is Marina shoot.…So, all I have to do is, click on the project where I want the pictures to go and Aperture is smart enough…to follow along with me, so I can tell my source right here which is the memory card…and I can tell the destination, very easy to follow.…
Now I am going to go over to the images themselves for a few minutes…and then we're going to get into our setup pane right here.…Clicking on one image I have some basic information right here.…I can see the filename, I can see the capture date, the type of file, the size and this dimensions.…I am going to come back to this image information box a little bit later…because Aperture will show me some adjusted information also.…I'll click on the gray area and that deselects that image and we're going to talk…

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.
