Join Derrick Story for an in-depth discussion in this video Using RAW Fine Tuning, part of Aperture 2 Essential Training.
I am going to take a moment and talk about RAW Fine Tuning.…It's at the top of our Adjustments palette right here, and it will only show up if you have a RAW file selected.…If these are all JPEGs, no matter what I clicked on,…I would not have all RAW Fine Tuning there because it is not a RAW file.…You have to have a RAW file for RAW Fine Tuning to show up.…Let's open up this brick and see what we have.…Well the first thing we see is you get to see what Camera you have here.…Now this is for a reason.…
Apple has created a profile for the RAW files for this particular Camera as it has with many, many others.…So these settings here are not just willy-nilly settings, they are based on work that Apple has done,…profiling the files that are produced by this Camera.…Now the latest version of RAW Fine Tuning is 2.0.…There were previous versions.…When Aperture first came out, we had 1.0 interpretation, then we had 1.1 interpretation…and now with Aperture 2 we are up to version 2.0, and they are different.…
Let me see if I can show you those differences right now.…

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.
