Just a quick note to say to everyone who is an Apple Aperture user, please check out Richard Harrington's Podcasts at http://www.rastervector.com/. They have taught me a bunch of little tips, such as full colour levelling and enhancing, as well as embedding a watermark in export images.
I am already feeling much more confident of two things, one my photography will improve because of this, as the above shot of the 2be mrs. creativebloke testifies. Colour has been leveled and enhanced and definition has been much improved.
The second is that Aperture is awesome!!!! (but we knew that)
