Join Derrick Story for an in-depth discussion in this video New filtering and searching options, part of Aperture 2 New Features.
Aperture 2.0 provides you with some excellent new filtering tools.…There's one in particular that I wanted to show you because I think it's so exciting in that now you can actually search by adjustment,…and what I mean by that, image adjustment, something that you've done to your photographs and you want…to find all the examples of that type of adjustment in your library.…I'm going to start by going to All Photos right here, because that way I can look in my whole Aperture library, and I'll go up here and right next…to the search field here is this little button, and we're going to click on that, and that brings up our Query HUD.…
Now what I want to do is I want to add search by adjustments, and that's under the plus sign there, and I'll just check on that,…and I'm going to change my criteria to any match, and we're going to take rating off because we don't need that, and what I'd like to find are any…of the shots in my library that I've used the Monochrome Mixer for my black and white shots.…So I'll go, adjustments includes, and then I'll pick here, Monochrome Mixer, and then I'm actually going to create a new album…

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.
