Join Derrick Story for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the Retouch brick, part of Aperture 2 Essential Training.
I am not going to move down to the Control Bar here because we have lots of amazing tools down in this area here…and I am going to start with one of the most amazing of the bunch and that is the Retouch tool.…This is something that everyone wants to do and in prior versions of Aperture the Retouch tool wasn't nearly…as robust and we ended up having to go to other applications such as Photoshop to do our retouching and the cloning work.…No more. This is a very strong tool and I am going to show you right now how it works.…
I am going to go to full screen mode on this image.…So I am just going to hit the F key, take us to full screen mode and we have up here our Control Bar appears…when I move the mouse up to the top so we can get to all of our Control Bar tools and I am going…to pick the Retouch tool which is right here and we get a little heads-up display for the Retouch tool.…Now we have two areas for it.…We have Repair tool and basically what the Repair tool does is it allows us just to click on a spot that we want to fix.…

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.
