Setting Up an Aperture System

Setting up the hardware for your system can be as simple as connecting your camera or card reader to your computer. You can also set up a system that uses external hard disks and color-calibrated displays.

It provides instructions for setting up a basic system, explains optional equipment that you might consider to enhance your system, and explains how to set up additional displays. For information about software and hardware requirements for using Aperture, see the Before You Install Aperture document on the Aperture installation disc.
