This may sound a tad basic but keep in mind that I'm over 50 and still struggling with the principals of the pedal bin...

I'm currently using an iMac and Aperture 2 but can't for the life of me see how to re-size an image to upload to my PF. Any help would be great. Sad

I'm a 52 year old with an iMac24, a pedal bin, iPhone and some other stuff. I love Aperture but find Photoshop Elements 6.0 the most flexible way to comply with EPZ's odd file size requirements.

I'm not an expert but this is how i do it, once you have set the format and size it will always be in your Export presets

In Aperture, File, Export, Version, this opens a new window you will see Export Preset click on box move down to EDIT.

Image Format: should be jpeg
Size To: select Fit within (pixels)
Width ( to required size i.e 1000)
Hight ( to required size i.e 1000)

Now click OK at the bottom. This will take you back to the export window I personally save it to my desktop and upload it from there.

Once you have set the format and size it will always be in your Export presets

Also you can use the aperture help then user manual its on page 507
Hope this helps
