Apple’s Photos app for macOS High Sierra offers myriad improvements

“Enterprise or consumer user, you probably take a lot of photos with your iPhone – that’s why it’s the most popular camera used on Flickr,” Jonny Evans writes for Computerworld. “What does macOS High Sierra’s Photos app bring you once you get those images to your Mac?”

“Reflecting its focus on photography, the company has worked quite hard to make the application even more useful than before,” Evans writes. “These include new editing, organizing, Live Photo editing, improvements to the People album and improved integration with third-party photo editing apps, like Photoshop or Pixelmator.”

“Available in the Filters pane, Apple is introducing a range of powerful new filters you can use to add a little style to your images,” Evans writes. “I think they are a little more effective than the existing choices.”

MacDailyNews Take: We especially like how you can now open images in Pixelmator from inside Photos.


  1. Looking forward to the changes. I do have to say that third party integration is important.
    Perhaps Photos is becoming a real “Aperture” type program?

    Since installing Affinity Photo, I have used Pixelmator for photographs once. Pixelmator is a great program, but I can do more, and faster, in Affinity Photo. The seven extensions I’ve installed for Photos help a lot.

    1. Yea, but they have that really cool transparency effect on the left column. /s

      I cringe overtime I help upgrade someone that actually used iPhoto and have to explain the GIANT step backwards with Photos.

      What a train wreck Apple. How long does it take to fix?
