Sample text

Toolbar The Toolbar runs across the top of the Aperture interface, just as it does in Word, Excel, Finder windows in Mac OS X and in most mainstream applications. Its importance has been greatly reduced in Aperture 2; for while it was once used to open and close panels, rotate, crop and straighten images, fix red eye and apply selective patches to your work, it has benefited from a radical slimming down, and now focuses on core features (Fig. 7). The first icon on the Toolbar – Inspector – hides and shows the combined Properties, Metadata and Adjustments panel on the left of the interface.

You can, however, make changes to the metadata (Fig. 18). That is the last of the buttons that control the way Aperture displays and selects your images. You’ll soon realize that these features will be among the most often used in the application, and so it pays to learn their shortcuts early on, to save you excessive mousing time. Full-Screen and Dual-Screen Mode Aperture comes into its own when given room to breathe. While it’s happy running on a MacBook or MacBook Pro for quick-anddirty photo selections on the road, you’ll work faster and more productively with two screens, or at the very least a large wide display you can devote entirely to the application.

The ‘All Projects’ Album at the very top of the Library section shows thumbnail views of every Project you have created in the application. Rolling your mouse across them from left to right or right to left flicks through all the images they contain, allowing you to quickly preview their contents, thereby helping you distinguish between similarly named Projects (Italy 2008 and Italy 2009, for example). We’ll explore these subdivisions in greater detail in the pages that follow. Fig. 3 The Projects Inspector organizes not only Projects, but also folders, Albums, Smart Albums and the products you make with your images, such as Web pages, Galleries, Journals and Books.
