OK guys & Gals, a Qustion for you all. I just now discovered the light table feature in Aperture. My question is: What is it there for, what use is it?
As a graphic designer/photographer it is great for figuring out which images will work for a project and even getting some ideas for layout.
That is what it's there for so when a commercial photographer works with an art director they can try things and get ideas of what direction they want the shoot to go. It's mainly for artistic use. It's also for photographers to use for laying out photo books or other products for clients.
You can also make a book with one of the preset book designs
and layout the book add add text. You can send to get these books printed. It has useful features also like viewing only the photos you haven't used in the filmstrip below the main view. That way when you grab a photo and add it to the layout it won't show in the filmstrip so you know which images you have used and which you haven't.
