Aperture has the potential to serve as our database for all of our images that we can share…with other applications and outside of Aperture itself.…But in order to do that there are few things that you have to know how to work.…At the heart of this is previews and I am going to show you a little bit about how to manage your previews…and how to control them for your own devices.…We will start out in the Preferences area here, under Previews and we talked about these boxes before…but essentially, if you want to generate previews automatically when you bring photos in the Aperture,…check this box and if you want to let Aperture use any JPEG that's available…for a preview while it's generating its own, a lot of times it can steal one from the camera as it's coming in,…check that box and then very importantly, make sure that this box is checked…because that allows the Aperture not only to share the previews that you generate with iLife and iWork,…but virtually any application outside of Aperture, that's a very important box to check.…
