Join Derrick Story for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the Red Eye correction tool, part of Aperture 2 Essential Training.
So, I've imported some new shots into our Aperture library.…I have got some cool kids shots here, and one of them has this tremendous red eye.…I mean you can probably see it appearing out at you right now as we speak.…So, this is a good opportunity to look at the Red Eye Correction tool and Aperture,…and that's what I am going to do right now.…We'll click on our red eye boy here, and I am going to hit the V key.…That way I can bring it up, get a better look at it, and this is a major does of red eye, I tell you.…
You're not going to see anymore red eye than what we have here in this shot.…And this is a good opportunity for me to talk about the best red eye correction in the world is actually prevention…because you'll see that the Red Eye tool is nice, it works well, but preventing red eye gives you even better results.…So if you have the opportunity to turn up the lights in the room or may be have your subject look at a bright light…and then turn back to you or not shoot directly into your subject's eyes…

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.
