Join Derrick Story for an in-depth discussion in this video Publishing to a .Mac Web Gallery, part of Aperture 2 New Features.
If you have a .Mac account, Aperture 2 gives you a terrific way to share your images with other people by creating a .Mac web gallery.…Now this is something that we saw introduced in iPhoto '08 that was just very popular, and what Apple has done for Aperture is…that they've even added another feature that I'm going to show you right now, so what I'd like to do is I'd to share some photos.…I've created an album here which is called Web Share, and basically I've just selected eight images that I would like to share online.…
Now not only would I like to be able to have people look at it.…Let's say that I want the folks that hired me to take these shots.…Not only do I want them to be able to look at the shots I took, but maybe I want them to be able…to download the masters from the shoot also, so let's see how that works.…We go up here to New.…I'm going to choose Web Gallery and I can give it a name.…Now it picked up the name of my album, but I wanna call it Soccer Shots, give it a descriptive name, and these are photos taken by - I even know…

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.
