Effective Aperture Workflow eBook Released!

My first ebook, Effective Aperture Workflow, is now released!

A compact, straight-talking guide for streamlining your photography workflow in Apple Aperture.

This book is designed with a sole purpose ... empower you to simplify, streamline, and customize your photography workflow in Apple's Aperture software. This book provides a solid, cohesive workflow showing the full life cycle of a photo in Aperture, from import through the final adjusted image. A tried and tested workflow used by the author every day.

Topics covered in this book include:

  • Identifying your photographic goals and tailoring your workflow to match
  • Normalizing metadata during import
  • Keyword strategies
  • Keeping track of where each photo is in your workflow
  • Harnessing Aperture's search tools to find photos quickly
  • Using Aperture with multiple Macs
  • ... and much more

Effective Aperture Workflow is not just a "how-to" guide, but also a "why-to" guide. The importance of each workflow step is explained, as well as how each step supports your photographic goals. Plus, this guide contains over 25 minutes of video tutorials showing each workflow step in action.

Simply put, this book will help you streamline your workflow and get the most out of Aperture.

Available now on the iBookstore for $6.99 USD. At 50+ pages including 25+ minutes of video ... that's a steal in my opinion.

I recognize that not everyone may have an iPad. I chose the iBooks format since a Mac iBooks app is coming to OS X Mavericks later this year. If there's sufficient demand, I could make a "lite" version of the book (no video) and distribute as a PDF.

I look forward to your comments and your suggestions for updates to the book.
