As long and as often as I’ve used Aperture, I still find things I either forgot about or just never noticed. Many of you are probably the same way, so it’s kind of fun to discover something new.
This little tip falls into that category.
When you first tell Aperture to brush an adjustment onto an image either by selecting a Quick Brush or by clicking on the Adjustment’s Action menu and selecting either to brush the adjustment in, or brush it away, Aperture brings the Brush HUD up immediately.
Bring Back the HUD
All these years I’ve navigated my way through the action menu, often accidentally selecting the wrong choice and bringing up a new adjustment instead of the brush.
But in fact all you have to do is click that little brush icon on the adjustment you want to brush in or away!
So that’s all there is to it. It’s a simple way to speed up your adjustment workflow when you are using brushes.
