Apple has published an extensive Aperture tutorial, which it is making available online.

The company claims the tutorial will let Aperture users learn how to use the application better in just ten steps.

Written by former president of the Association of Photographers Jonathan Briggs the tutorial offers a selection of keyboard short-cuts and ten easy-to-comprehend notes covering a variety of the application's functions.

Hints include easy ways to navigate through projects, use of the Loupe tool, moving between viewing angles, suggestions for effective use of tabbed browsing, and shortcuts for using full-screen view when working on an image.

The tutorial is available here.
