“With Photos for OS X, Apple has managed to build an app that feels both refreshingly new and comfortably familiar. For me, there was barely a learning curve in jumping from iPhoto to Photos,” Bonnie Cha writes for Re/code. “Overall, Photos is just a more visually stunning and pleasant app to use.”
“Photos offers many of the same editing tools as iPhoto, but they’re easier to use and offer more functionality,” Cha writes. “While Apple believes that Photos will offer enough to satisfy many current Aperture users and pros, the company said it also understands that others might opt for a more powerful editing program like Adobe Lightroom.”
Cha writes, “Based on my experience so far, Photos for OS X looks to be a huge improvement over iPhoto in all aspects, even if it lacks some of the advanced tools that will appeal to Aperture users and professional photographers.”
