It took me quite a while before buying the Aperture 2 tutorial. I was waiting for the 3 version. Also I tought that I would have enough information to work with Aperture since I took the 6 hours course provided at The Apple Store. I did realize soon enough that the amount of information to keep in mind is so big that you forget half of it when you have to work with it. It is where your tutorials are fantastics. You can come back to the exact information that you need because the titles are precises and clear.
Also you can go at your pace. I usually have a first hearing and go back after to what I need.I still regret to not have the version 3 but I can adapt. So much is covered and in a simple way. I recommend your services to friends and have been very satisfied to what you have produce so far.

It was a great introduction to the Aperture. I just wish there was a intermediate or advanced version to learn the more advanced applications of Aperture.
The only suggestion I have is to shorten the corporate introductions, after an hour or so the intro's became VERY repetitive.

Every tutorial I have purchased from Macprovideo has been first class and much more fun than reading a user manual.

Although I'm not a pro photographer, not even close to that, I rely a lot on Aperture to give my photos a more professional look.
The problem is, photography is not what I do for living, and there's not that much time to learn a beast like Aperture by myself, so that's when MacProVideo tutorials come in.
In just a couple weeks, I went from a "what's this" to "this is how you do it" behavior.
Absolutely great tutorials! Love them.

The video did a very good job of covering the basics, suggested workflows and features of the Aperture 2 software. It would have been a very difficult transition from my previous previous image workflow and storage system without the benefit of reviewing the video. I would like to have seen a more in-depth coverage of the image adjustment features of the software. I would recommend the video to others.
