Applying Adjustment Presets to Versions
Aperture provides adjustment presets, or collections of saved adjustment settings, that
you can apply to images. You choose these adjustment presets from the Presets pop-up
menu in the Adjustments inspector.
You can also make your own presets. For example, if the images from a photo shoot
need the same series of adjustments applied to them, you can create an adjustment
preset, select all the images, and apply the adjustment preset to all the images at once.
In the Library inspector, select the Canadian Road Trip project in the Travel folder.
Click the Split View button in the toolbar.
Select the Canada 015 image.
Select this image.
You’ll make several versions of this image and apply adjustments to it.
