A First Look at Aperture

When you first open Aperture, you see the following areas:

Note: Because you can customize the toolbar, adding and deleting buttons and controls, your toolbar may look different from the one pictured in this manual. For more information about changing the toolbar, see Customizing the Toolbar.

After you import images into projects, your screen will look similar to this:
