Join Derrick Story for an in-depth discussion in this video Printing a single image, part of Aperture 2 Essential Training.
Well, we have all sorts of wonderful output options in Aperture and printing is no different.…They have really done a nice job of giving us an easy way to manage our printing.…I'm going to show you that right now.…We are going to start out by making just a single print, I'm going to pick my kayaks here…and I'll go up to File and I'll choose Print Image.…And up comes a dialog box here that really has three parts.…The areas where we get to set our presets which I'm going to do in just one minute and then the area where we get…to make some settings and then finally the image itself and we get to see what's going…on with the image as we worked these settings.…
I'm going to start out by creating a new preset because that way all of the work that I do over here will be retained…and I can come back and then next time if I want those same settings, I just hit the Preset,…I don't have to reset the whole dialog box.…Very handy, this is good stuff.…So we will do a New Single Image Preset and we will call it Letter Print just…

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.
