About the exercise files,…if you are a premium member of lynda.com Online Training Library or if you are watching this tutorial on a DVD-ROM,…you have access to the exercise files used throughout this title.…For this title, the images used are provided within Aperture Project Containers which you can load at the outset of the…training by simply dragging the containers into the Projects tab of the Inspector pane.…The images within the Project Containers are set to the original state without any adjustments.…
While following along with the chapters in the videos of this course,…you will be making adjustments to many of the images…as well as the settings to Aperture itself.…As we make changes, your images will differ from those in the original downloaded Project Containers.…If at any time you want to return to the original state, delete the project from Aperture and replace it with the original Project Container.…If you are a regular, monthly…or annual subscriber to lynda.com, you can follow along from scratch with your own images.…

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.
