Apple's Photos for Mac OS X Yosemite combines an iOS-like interface with advanced editing tools familiar to desktop users. CNET takes a closer look at the developer release.
If you're an iOS user, you'll recognize the layout of your photos that lets you switch between moments, collections and years.
When you look at the Albums view you'll have all the albums you've created at the bottom, with ways Apple has designed to help you find pictures at the top.
iPhoto users will recognize the Faces feature that picks out people in your images and groups them together so you can find them.
Apple gives you a number of things you can do with your images under the Projects tab.
Click the plus sign in the upper right to create a new project. You can make holiday and gift cards, photo books, calendars and more.
The Photos app doesn't come with very many filters, but all are high quality from what I've seen.
These easy sliders for adjusting brightness, colors and other attributes hide all the actual adjustments made to your photo. You can click the arrow to the right of the heading to get the specific adjustments being made.
Not every picture is perfect. Sometimes you take a photo at an angle and while you can manually rotate it, it often leaves gaps at the top and sides.
With the Photos app, you can click the Auto button in the lower right to automatically make it level and crop the gaps out for a perfect image.
