Tweet Day 9I’m starting to feel like a monkey using Aperture 2. It’s probably me, I’m just getting overwhelmed with everything Aperture can do. The learning curve seems quite steep. The tutorials show 2 different screen modes and I can’t seem to get to the one I like. I might be too familiar with Adobe […]
