Photos on Your Mac Course Description:

Photos has amazing tools for importing photos, then organizing them using People, Places, Keywords, Favorites, and Albums.

Improve your photos with Photos’ powerful editing tools. We’ll cover all aspects of the editing options that Photos has to offer, including cropping, red-eye, retouching, and adjusting color.

Photos integrates automatically with Mail, Facebook, and more. We’ll look at how to download photos from the web and email, then import them into your Photos Library. Then we’ll learn how to share your photos with the world as easily as clicking a button.

Turn your Photos into a self-running slideshow with a soundtrack! We’ll edit your photos, arrange them, create Ken Burns pans and transitions, set them to music, and upload them to YouTube for your loved ones to see.

Another great way to keep your memories alive is with prints, photo albums, and greeting cards. We’ll learn how to design professionally-published keepsakes, using the 3rd party extensions like Mimeo and Motif that are available from the App Store!
