Join Derrick Story for an in-depth discussion in this video Viewing your images using Slideshow, part of Aperture 2 Essential Training.
Slideshows are a great way to take a look at your images.…Now you have lots of different options that Aperture provides for you.…You can create your own custom options and you can even add music…to your presentation to give you that little extra oomph.…I am going to show you how to do that right now.…Start off by just clicking on a project.…You can click on an album or you can even just select a bunch of pictures.…Make your selection and then you go up to Slideshow.…You get this little dialog box and you click on the pop-up and you see…that Apple provides you with some basic starting points.…
You have Dissolve, so I'll just click Start, the slideshow begins, you see your first image,…the image dissolves into the next image and you are going.…Well, that's nice but, that's maybe a little poky for me, a little slow.…I like something a little perkier.…Can I create my own custom slideshow?…I am going to hit the Escape key to get out of here.…Well, the answer happens to be, yes, you can.…We're going to go back the slideshow.…

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.
