If you're a Premium member of the lynda.com library, you have access to the exercise files. You can download the files from the Exercise Files tab on the main page for this course. In the course, we use several photo libraries as you see here. The downloadable versions reflect the files as they are at the end of the course. Since this isn't project-based, it's okay if what you see on the screen doesn't match exactly what you've downloaded. If you don't have access to the Exercise Files, you can follow along from scratch or use your own files.
In fact, that's what I encourage you to do. Okay, let's get started!
In this course, photographer, author, and teacher Derrick Story shows key strategies for employing both iPhoto and Aperture in a digital photography workflow. The course begins with a look at the unified photo library format and managing your library with both applications.
Next, the course examines the professional-level image editing features in Aperture and details strategies for sharing photos through slideshows and print projects, guiding you to the best application for the job at hand. It concludes with lessons on exporting photos using Aperture, managing an iCloud Photo Stream, and backing up your library.
