    It’s an excellent course that explain better all the power of Aperture 3 with focus on adjustment tools. It’s very clear and it starts from the basic elements to introduce more complex techniques including use of PS and plugins. —- Yes, please post my feedback

    A little while into the program, I realized that it is not based on the latest version 3.2.3. Some of the important changes in this version are not covered. I hope an updated version will be available soon. Please let me know when this happens. But, apart from this one criticism, the course is very well done, and is very instructive. —- Yes, please post my feedback

    Really, really GREAT training video. I’ve been using Aperture for several years now and I learned more in this one session that many of the articles and other videos I’ve seen. When and IF Aperture 4 ever comes out and updated lesson is a must, IMO. Thank you all at Kelby Training. These lessons are well worth the money spent joining as a member! —- Yes, please post my feedback

      The supplementals for this class run about 1.2GB in size. Make sure the download is complete before attempting to open it. That time will vary depending on your internet connection.
