MacVoices #18230: Jason Snell Takes Control of Apple’s Photos on Mac and iOS

Jason Snell helps you get the most out of Apple’s photo utilities in his new book, Take Control of Photos. An evolution from a previous title, Jason’s latest effort expands on that to cover both Photos in iOS 12 and macOS Mojave. He talks about why the format of this book is more in tune with how we consume information now, then digs in to how Photos compares with other photo editing options out there, what you can and can’t do with your photos on Apple TV, and the new capabilities Apple has given us for creating printed items even though they are no longer offering that under their brand. The iOS version of Photos has plenty of new features and capabilities, sometimes outstripping its desktop counterpart. Jason tells us what they are and how to use them.
