Live Pho­tos and ad­vanced colour ad­just­ments

Pho­tos – and iPhoto be­fore it – has never been a mere tool for or­gan­is­ing pic­tures and videos; it’s also packed with use­ful edit­ing fea­tures.

In macOS High Sierra, Ap­ple has made big changes to this as­pect of the app. It’s now eas­ier to man­age im­ports and fil­ter al­bums – and you can do far more with Live Pho­tos. The app feels more con­sid­ered for fine-tun­ing your pho­to­graphs, too. Its new Curves and Se­lec­tive Color tools add a pro­fes­sional sheen, and the re­vamped in­ter­face is more us­able, mak­ing a big­ger range of ad­just­ment tools im­me­di­ately ac­ces­si­ble by hous­ing them within a scrolling pane.

Here, we’ll take a look at the or­gan­i­sa­tion ca­pa­bil­i­ties and more ad­vanced edit­ing tools you may have missed. As ever, Pho­tos re­mains a non-de­struc­tive edi­tor. This means you can ex­per­i­ment with var­i­ous ad­just­ments and tog­gle them us­ing the blue check mark but­tons, but can re­set them if you don’t like the changes you’ve made. Craig Gran­nell
