Join Derrick Story for an in-depth discussion in this video Using Monochrome, Color Monochrome, and Sepia, part of Aperture 2 Essential Training.
Once upon a time making black and white images from our color shots was just a lot of work.…It would be like these complicated Photoshop recipes that you have to follow up to end up with good looking black…and white, not just converting something to gray scale but something had real black and white qualities.…Well, Aperture has given us some great tools for doing that very same thing and they are easy to use and what I…like to do is l like to show you how to convert an image to Monochrome, to Color Monochrome and then also Sepia.…
And what I am going to do is I am going to work with this shot here and this is a great opportunity…to talk a little bit more about versions because I want to have black and white or monochrome versions…of my shot but I want to keep my color too.…So we are going to create more versions for this shot and then we will have them all in the stack…and then we can pick whatever we want, we want to use when we want to use it.…So let's get started.…The first thing what I am going to do is I am going to click on the shot and then I am going to right-click on the shot.…

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.
