Join Derrick Story for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the Filter HUD, part of Aperture 2 Essential Training.
Right next to the Search box we have the Filter heads-up display that allows us to fine tune our searches even more.…I am going to click on it right now.…Let's look for James again, we know that's a keyword.…Click on Keyword,…click on James…and there we go, we have all of our James' shots.…But…the power of Filter means that we can search by more than one criterion.…So for example,…let's say that I want to search by James and an adjustment that I made on one of the James' photos.…
So I'll go to Adjustments here,…and let's say, ooh! I know. Highlights & Shadows.…Highlights & Shadows.…And now we found the James' shots.…Plus, we found the shots where we made Highlights & Shadows adjustments.…You have all sorts of options in the Filter heads-up display so that you can find just about any shot that you want.…Now one of the things I want to show you while we are here. I'm going to click on the Adjustments.…So we have all of the standard adjustments and we can search by Raw Decode versions,…and I think this is really helpful if you have been using Aperture for a long time and you have different versions of…

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.
