“At WWDC, Apple unveiled a new App Extension architecture for both iOS 8 and OS X Yosemite. Here’s how the new extensions will change photo editing on both platforms, where the new Photos app will replace today’s iPhoto and Aperture,” Daniel Eran Dilger reports for AppleInsider.
“At last month’s WWDC, Apple outlined its new App Extensions architecture with particular attention given to one specific application of Extensions: Photo Editing,” Dilger reports. “Third party developers can now build Extensions that are designed to edit photos (or video) within the Photos app. This incorporates the non-destructive editing features introduced with Aperture, while at the same time effectively opening up the stock Filters feature iOS 7 introduced.”
Dilger reports, “The new Extensions feature isn’t the only major advance for Photos in iOS 8: Apple also dramatically improved upon its existing (and somewhat confusing) iCloud Photo Stream implementation.”
