“Apple’s new Photos app for Mac computers, available Wednesday as a free software update, makes it easy to organize and edit your pictures,” Anick Jesdanun reports for The Associated Press. “The app, which replaces iPhoto, bundles professional-level tools such as granular color correction into one free consumer package.”
“Photos is good for auto-enhancing, cropping and other basic touches such as lightening underexposed shots. But it goes further by also including some of the advanced fine-tuning you’d find in a tool like Adobe Lightroom, which costs $149,” Jesdanun reports. “With a new iCloud Photo Library online-storage service, all your mobile photos will sync to the Mac app, along with your iPhoto albums… By storing full-resolution images online, Photos can free up space on your Mac or mobile device by substituting a lower-quality version. You can still get the original whenever you need it, but it’s not taking up room if you don’t. Photos figures all that out for you and takes into account how much space you have.”
Jesdanun reports, “How to get the app: Check the Mac’s App Store for version 10.10.3 of the Mac system.”
