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
