Lightroom has a handy feature which allows the user to print to a file.  I prefer to use Aperture, can this be done in Aperture?

 

My projects are typically about 250 images.  I would like to create an A4 picture package with two photos per page and output them to a file preferabley pdf or jpg.

    You can use the "Print to pdf", that is available in mac applications.

     

    Select all images in your project, and then use the command "File > Print".

    Set the layout as you want the pages to appear:

    Then press the "Print" button.

    In the "Print" dialogue select the "PDF" drop-down menu in the lower left corner and select "Save to pdf".

    Roderick, have you tried to change the Print Resolution in the "Rendering" brick of the Print-panel?

     

    When I do not use the option "Auto", but set it to a smaller dpi-value, for example 72 dpi, I can reduce the file size considerably. A file printed with "Auto" at 168 MB was reduced to 5 MB.
