One of the greatest resources for learning Aperture is made available by Apple, 24 hours a day in the form of tutorials on their website. When you go to www.apple.com/aperture and click on “Tutorials” you will see a range of QuickTime videos that can help you master this program. In real time, you see specific Aperture functions being performed. This makes it easier for you when you try these feature sets having already seen them in action.
The great thing about these tips and tutorials is that you can save them to your computer and watch them at your leisure, perfect for when you’re in transit or away on an assignment and want to spend some educational down time.
To save them, you need to have QuickTime Pro, which is a $30 download that gives you a bunch of features not available with the free Quicktime version, including the ability to save QuickTime movies.
Simply view the tutorial. Click on the bottom right corner of the QuickTime video and a pop-down menu appears. Scroll down to “Save as QuickTime Movie” and save it for later. If it’s grayed out and won’t let you save, make sure the tutorial has played through and saved in your browser’s cache. You will be able to save it then.
View and download them all and you’ll be well on your way to mastering Aperture after a few views.
