Mastering Aperture

Apple Aperture is one of the leading photo editing software packages available in today’s market. It provides you with all the tools to organize, browse, and perfect your images, so you can make every shot your best shot.

Mastering Apple Aperture aims to teach you the skills and knowledge necessary to become a master of the Apple Aperture software. It will build upon your existing core skills and show you new and advanced ways to get things done in Apple’s powerful photography software.

Mastering Apple Aperture starts by showing you the most simple and efficient ways to import and organize your images. It then takes you through the techniques for processing photos before moving on to cover advanced topics like working with tethered shooting, multiple libraries, curves, and metadata.

You will discover how to edit images in Aperture and will gain complete mastery over processing images. You will also explore ways of extending Aperture through the use of plugins and third-party software. This book concludes with tips and tricks for the best ways to output images from Aperture, whether for print or for screen.

As with all of Apple’s pro grade software, Aperture’s easy to use interface is built upon an abundance of complex and powerful features. The new book Mastering Apple Aperture by Thomas Fitzgerald has great insight into many of these hidden elements which can take your imaging workflow to the next level, although he does leave a few stones unturned.
Fitzgerald refrains from covering the very basics of the program in the understanding that you probably already have basic knowledge of working with Apple Macs and Aperture. As someone who generally skips the user manual and dives right in, I was very thankful for this. Instead he helps the reader find the right tools to increase their productivity while giving real world examples of how and when to use them.
