With most software programs for those not blessed with a photographic memory, it’s a matter of use it or lose it. As photographers we constantly take pictures, but even if I’ve been away from the camera for a short while I tend to forget certain shortcuts that I might have used previously.
The Control-Click options in Aperture are many and powerful and can speed things up during a long post processing session.
By Control-Clicking on a picture, a range of options are available to you (see below) from rating, deleting and export to updating previews or summoning the loupe.
If you Control-Click on a project, you can create new books and albums for that project, delete, import, export, relocate or consolidate masters or start a slideshow.
It’s just one more way to speed things up and make you a more savvy Aperture user.
I’m hoping to see and meet Inside Aperture viewers and bloggers at this week’s PhotoPlus Expo in New York. You might find me at the blueearth.org booth on the show floor.
