Join Derrick Story for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the Export plug-ins, part of Aperture 2 Essential Training.
Another option that you have when you are exporting your images out of Aperture is to use a third-party plug-in,…and there is a whole lot of these things available.…They have third-party plug-ins for Aperture to Flickr; for Aperture to Gmail; for Aperture to just about anything…that you want to do outside of Aperture, it's probably a plug-in for it.…Now I have loaded a plug-in into our version of Aperture here, it's a nifty little one that allows me to take a bunch…of photos and create an archive, a zipped archive.…
Now, this is something that I could do on my own, I could export a bunch of images; a bunch of images;…a bunch of versions, loose, and then I could put them in a folder and create an archive and end up at the same spot.…The idea with this plug-in and with almost all of the export plug-ins is…that it saves your time and sort of streamlines a process.…This whole notion of working faster and more efficiently and smarter,…and export plug-ins fit right in with that sort of thinking.…So let me show you how this one works, because it's very similar to how many of the plug-ins operate.…

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.
