MacVoices #15156: Jeff Carlson Discusses Photos for OS X and iOS

Jeff Carlson just finished Photos for OS and iOS, his effort to help you get the most out of Apple’s new photo app and services. Starting with a discussion of why iPhoto was lacking, Jeff gives us a look at what Photos and its related cloud-based options bring to the table for all levels of photographers, from DSLR shooters to iPhone users. If you’re an Aperture user, Jeff has some news about the upcoming version of Photos in El Capitan that will interest you, so don’t make the switch to Lightroom just yet.
