Updated for Aperture 3.4, this Apple-certified guide starts with the basics of image management and takes you step by step through Aperture's powerful editing, retouching, proofing, publishing, and archiving features. It delivers comprehensive training—the equivalent of a two-day course—in one project-based book. With complete coverage of Aperture's new interface and features, you'll learn to index your photos using face recognition and GPS location data; master powerful non-destructive image-adjustment tools including brush-based local adjustments; and create impressive slideshows that include photos, HD video clips, and layered soundtracks. Learn time-saving techniques for sorting, ranking, and organizing images for use in different jobs. And discover effective ways to publish images for client review and keep your online portfolio up to date automatically. This book's real-world exercises feature professional photography from a variety of genres, including landscapes, portraits, wedding, and wildlife photography.
