Master Apple’s Photos App with Photos: A Take Control Crash Course

Tc photosMake the most of Apple’s Photos app in macOS Sierra and iOS 10, and on an Apple TV! This book by Jason Snell, publisher of Six Colors and former lead editor at Macworld, explains Photos’ new machine-learning features, like Categories and Memories. It also teaches you how to extend your Photos experience across all your Apple devices—take a photo on your iPhone, put it in an album on your iPad, edit it on your Mac’s large screen, and show it off via your Apple TV!

Jason walks you through the Photos interface and describes how you can organize your images, both with Apple’s automatic albums, categories, and Memories, and with your own keywords, albums, and smart albums.

You’ll learn how to make standard edits like cropping and removing red-eye along with more sophisticated improvements via the powerful Adjustments panel. If you want to go further, Jason explains how how to add third-party editing extensions. For those who are feeling crafty, there’s a chapter about using Photos to create your own books, cards, and calendars.

The book also provides invaluable advice on using iCloud Photo Library, sharing your photos via social media, and working with or merging multiple libraries.

For those new to Photos, Jason covers what to expect from Photos in comparison to Apple’s older iPhoto and Aperture apps, and he guides you through importing your existing libraries.
