A sneak peek at the Photos app

Services & Software
The photos app from Mac OS10 Yosemite is coming this spring, but Apple released it to developers and let us have a look to see what's in store for your images. I'm Jason Parker for Cnet and this is a first look at Apple's photos app. The new photos app will display your photos much like it does in iOS, letting you switch between moments. Collections, and years. Also like ios, you'll be able to click and drag to scrub from photo to photo on the wall. To edit a photo, you just click the edit button on the upper right. Photos will have the one click enhance button just like ios, that automatically adjust levels and brightness for you to get the best look. It will also have rotate and cropping tools. That gives you a handful of filters to give your photos that retro look or black and white and a few others. The adjustment tools are also really cool, because you have a choice of doing something the easy way or digging down into various adjustments for more specific changes. If I wanted to change how a light an image is, I can use this slider, and you can see how the photo changes. But there are several changes happening behind the scenes. If I click this arrow, I can see all the more minor adjustments like exposure, highlights, and shadows, and I can adjust these individually, as well. So, same is true for color and black and white. Everything I've shown so far is under the photos tab, but there are four main buttons across the top, including photo. Shared, Albums, and Projects. As this is a demo machine from Apple, I haven't made any shared albums, but the Share button is where you'll see all the albums and photos you're currently sharing and the ones shared with you. You can create a shared album easily by naming it, adding friends or family, then add a comment. From there you can add photos and everyone will be able to see and comment on the photos you have. The albums button is where you'll find all of your created albums. A double click on an album brings up all of the photos in the collection and another double click opens a photo. But also in the album section are Apple-designed collections that will help you find the photo you want. Across the top here you have: all photos, faces, that iPhoto users will recognize, last import. Favorites and several other categories including the various video types. It's great for viewing all your panoramas, for example, and lets you look at them individually on a black background for the best experience. Next is Projects. Here is where you can get ideas for displaying your photos or you can spend a little cash to order hard copies of your images in a bunch of different formats. There are things like calendars, greeting cards where you can choose what's on the front, inside, and back, and several others. The most striking I thought Apple was the large hard cover book with two page layouts where the photos bleed off the page. And it allows for different types of layouts. The photos app will be a free upgrade that comes with the next version of Yosemite sometime this spring. I'm Jason Parker for CNET and this has been a first look at Apple's photos app for Yosemite. Thanks for watching. [MUSIC]
