Take Control of Photos

Take control of your photo collection in Photos for Mojave and iOS 12!

Get to know Apple’s Photos app and how best to use it to import, manage, edit, and share your photos in Mojave and iOS 12! As the successor to Apple’s iPhoto and Aperture apps, Photos has a more refined interface and deeper connections to iCloud, and it runs faster. Following the expert advice of Jason Snell, publisher of Six Colors and former lead editor at Macworld, you’ll learn how to navigate Photos like a pro!

This 156-page book replaces and more than doubles the length of Jason’s previous book Photos: A Take Control Crash Course. It’s now a full-length Take Control title with much more detail.

In this book, you’ll learn how to:

  • Migrate your library from iPhoto or Aperture (Apple’s discontinued professional photography app) into Photos
  • Import photos from devices or memory cards
  • Use multiple Photos libraries
  • Navigate the Photos interface, including the sidebar and icons
  • View, edit, or disable Live Photos
  • Organize your library by using enhanced search features, adding metadata, building albums, and creating smart albums
  • Edit your photos using quick fixes like cropping, applying filters, and fixing red-eye and rotation problems
  • Use advanced editing techniques within Photos and edit using external apps like Photoshop
  • Manage your photo collection using the Memories and People features, and get summary views
  • Sync and share your photos with iCloud
  • View your photos on an Apple TV
  • Share your photos via social media, export them out of Photos, or turn them into slideshows
  • Create printed objects (such as books and calendars) from your photos using third-party services

Jason also highlights changes in Photos under iOS 12, including searching for multiple items at once, a For You tab, and an updated Import tab; plus changes in Mojave, including new keyboard shortcuts and the removal of built-in features for making calendars, books, and other printed materials (and alternative means of obtaining them).

This book, which is about the new versions of Photos that Apple released in September 2018, covers Photos for macOS version 4.0 in Mojave, as well as Photos in iOS 12 and tvOS 12.
