Join Derrick Story for an in-depth discussion in this video Importing images from an iPhone, part of Aperture 2 Essential Training.
If you have an iPhone, then you know it's a terrific data capture device and Aperture can read those photos and you can…actually use Aperture to organize the images from your iPhone. It's not that much different than using images from…another source. I'll show you real quickly how it works. I have my iPhone plugged in…to the computer, I go up to the Import button.…There it shows up, right there,…there is my source. Now I may want to create a new project, iPhone images for example and put them in there. I definitely…don't want to put them in Marina, but for now we will leave this right here…and then here are the images from my phone.…
Now, one of the things that you will notice as I am scrolling through these, you'll go, why do you have these shots right here?…Well remember, the iPhone is a data capture device and it has some very handy uses. So one of the things that I do, when I'm in…a parking garage.…Before I leave my car, I take a picture of where my car is parked. This is really helpful, when you are getting on a plane…

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.
