Video duration: 0s 2h 37m Intermediate


Choosing between power and simplicity isn't an either-or proposition. The latest versions of iPhoto and Aperture now share a common photo library format, which means you can store all your photos in one central library, and then switch between the two apps as needed: use iPhoto for its simplicity and great sharing options, and Aperture for its powerful organization, image editing, and publishing features.

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.

Topics include:
  • Sharing libraries
  • Importing and exporting photos
  • Organizing your library
  • Editing images
  • Building slideshows
  • Creating prints, cards, books, and calendars
  • Archiving and back up your library
