Cre­at­ing al­bums from Photos

Easily de­sign and or­der photo al­bums and cards us­ing the Photos app

Mac Format - - IMPROVE -

Ap­ple has talked a lot about its new Photos app for the Mac, and how it uses iCloud Photo Li­brary to store your photos online so you can share them with oth­ers. But that doesn’t mean tra­di­tional printed pho­tog­ra­phy has gone out of style. In fact, dig­i­tal pho­tog­ra­phy has made it even eas­ier to use ser­vices such as Pho­to­Box and Moonpig, which al­low peo­ple to upload their photos and de­sign per­son­alised photo books, cal­en­dars and greet­ing cards.

If you have a Mac you can do this all your­self, us­ing the cre­ative tools in Photos. Of course, iPhoto also had tools for de­sign­ing and print­ing photo books and other doc­u­ments – and most of the de­sign tools we show you here are still avail­able in iPhoto if you haven’t yet up­graded to Photos – but Photos puts a greater em­pha­sis on cre­ative projects with a new Projects tab that sits along­side the other op­tions for pho­toedit­ing and online shar­ing. You can even or­der your printed books from within Photos, us­ing Ap­ple’s own UK-based print­ing ser­vice. Cliff Joseph
