Photos – and iPhoto be­fore it – has never been a mere tool for or­ga­niz­ing 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 images, 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.

As ever, though, Photos re­mains a non-de­struc­tive ed­i­tor. You can ex­per­i­ment with var­i­ous ad­just­ments and tog­gle them us­ing the blue check mark but­tons.
