Join Derrick Story for an in-depth discussion in this video Using metadata overlays, part of Aperture 2 Essential Training.
I like to show you a pretty nifty feature called Metadata Overlay.…Now you have done some investment in adding Metadata to your pictures at upload and possibly even afterwards,…adding Keywords and Copyright information and Captions and so forth.…This is a way to get sort of a payoff for some of that work for what you have done.…Now there is payoff all along the road and this will be one of the first ones.…I am going to go up to Preferences and we are going to go the Metadata tab in our Preferences dialog-box…and what you can see here, we have choices for Viewer mode and Browser mode.…
Now Browser mode is this right here, this is a Thumbnail view, then of course, if I double click on one…of these images then I get Viewer mode, the larger version.…So what I can do is I can choose a Metadata Overlay for each of those modes.…So I am going to choose File Info for one set and then I can toggle between two sets,…so it's not like I am just stuck with one choice.…I can choose one way to look at my data and then I can choose a second way to look…

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.
