Importing Pictures Into Aperture
Tutorial with Mike Le Gray
In the second of a series delving into the wondrous world of Apple's Aperture 3, we accompany Mike Le Gray as he shows us the first steps, by introducing us to the Import dialog box.
We learn how to insert metadata, including copyright and location information, as well as how to save to new projects. He shows how to create a new library, which is faster than a new catalog in Lightroom, as the program doesn't need to restart. We discover how to select only certain shots, shots locked in-camera and even how to exclude certain types of files, such as video and audio.
As if that wasn't enough, we go through how to apply development presets at the point of import, how to automatically create a backup of your files to a different drive and finally, how to edit the name after importing, in the Metadata panel and how to apply the Auto Enhance preset.
