How to rotate, crop, and straighten pictures in Photos for OS X

When you don't have time to carefully line up and perfectly frame every photo, you just need to shoot first and fix it in post later.

That's where straightening and cropping come in. Whether the horizon or a building looks oddly angled, or extra people or space are stealing focus from your subjects, Photos for OS X has just exactly those tools to help you line up what you want and cut out what you don't, so that even if you didn't frame the perfect photo, you can still end up with it. Also, if you need to rotate or flip a picture, you can do that too!

How to apply filters to images in Photos for OS X

How to apply filters to images in Photos for OS X

Filters became popular, back in the olden days of camera phones, as a way to make bad photos look less bad.

Photos for OS X brings the same kind of damage control to the Mac. Whether it's by adding a color overlay, boosting or flattening contrast, it lets you take pictures that look wrong and make them look artistic instead. They're the same subtle filters Apple introduced for the iPhone and iPad in iOS 7 so, while they may not have the same punch as some others, they're consistent and even more importantly — they're non-destructive. That means you can change your mind and even revert to normal at any time.

How to access histogram and other advanced adjustments in Photos for OS X

How to access histogram and other advanced adjustments in Photos for OS X

Histogram, sharpen, definition, noise reduction, vignette, white balance, and levels can all be added to your photo adjustment options.

That elevates Photos for OS X from a basic photo editing tool to something more advanced. The histogram, for example, lets you see the distribution of light and dark, red, blue, and green pixels within your image. Sharpen and definition can help make the blurry more clear. Vignette darkens images around the edges, and white balance and levels let you change casts, crush blacks, and more. All you have to do is turn them on!

How to use Photos for OS X with multiple Macs

Photos for OS X is great for pictures and videos on the Mac, but how does it work with multiple Macs?

I've had a multi-Mac household pretty much since college, rocking a laptop and desktop in addition to miscellaneous iOS devices throughout the years. Dropbox and iCloud sync made most of the pains of using several Macs disappear, but iPhoto was always a problem. My laptop is tiny! My iPhoto library, not so much.

Thankfully, Photos for OS X — paired with iCloud Photo Library's Optimize Storage feature — makes working with and syncing multiple Macs a breeze. Here's how you can do it.

How to adjust light, color, and more in Photos for OS X

From magic wand, to basic color, light, and black & white tweaks, or full, granular control over exposure, saturation, intensity, and more.

Photos for OS X has everything you need to make your pictures look exactly how you want. What's more, all the edits are non-destructive, so if you don't get something perfect the first time, you can change it again whenever you like, or even go right back to the original. Combine that with the large screen, and editing photos on the Mac isn't just easy, it's accessible to everyone.
