Apple unveils new Photos app for Mac

Photos for Mac

Apple has taken the wraps off a new Photos app for Mac at today's WWDC keynote event. Introduced on-stage by Craig Federighi, the new app is built with iCloud in mind, with a new look to fit with the OS X Yosemite visual style and "buttery smooth" scrolling.

The app introduces many familiar features from iOS, including Moments, pinch-to-zoom for collections and scrubbing. The new Photos for Mac also offers the same color and light adjustment meters as its iOS equivalent.

The app arrives along with new iCloud pricing tiers, giving users 5GB free, 20GB for $3.99 per month and 200GB for $3.99 per month.

Apple also showed off a new version of Photos for iOS. And for non-Mac users, the new Photos will also be available on the web.

I look forward to quick editing on the Mac without having to launch iPhoto or another app.

"20GB for $3.99 per month and 200GB for $3.99 per month"

Still no Face recognition, or even manual tagging. I have spent DAYS tagging faces in iPhoto on OSX, but they still can't get this in iOS?

Josh Laycock says:

So is this new 'Photos app" replacing iPhoto on mac? Have they just added a third piece of software for photos??? (iPhoto, Aperture & Photos)
