What's the difference between iCloud Photo Library and My Photo Stream?

How to import images and folders into Photos for OS X

If you've collected images you'd like to manage with Photos for OS X, there are a few ways to go about importing them.

Photos gives you pretty comprehensive image management features: You can edit and adjust your images, sort them into albums and more. That's great for photos you've shot on your iPhone, with a DSLR or a point and click camera. But if you've collected imagery over the years from other sources, those pictures may be floating free on your desktop or in folders on your Mac, accessible from the Finder. Here's how to get them all into Photos for OS X.

How to import multiple libraries into Photos for OS X

iPhoto and Aperture both support multiple libraries. So what do you do if you want to consolidate them all before migrating to Photos on your Mac?

Photos for OS X does let you work with multiple libraries, but it doesn't let you import them and combine them all together into a single, unified library. At least not yet. If you have Aperture, however, you can import and consolidate multiple Aperture and iPhoto libraries there first, then get the merged library into Photos for OS X. It's a work around, but it works.

How to use the new, diverse emoji keyboard on iPhone and iPad

iOS 8.3 has over 300 new, more diverse emoji, including five alternate skin tones and thirty two new country flags

As part of Apple's ongoing efforts to address diversity, iOS 8.3 includes a much wider array of cultures and ethnicities for face and hand symbols on iPhone and iPad. Face and hand emoji now start off with a "neutral" (i.e. classic yellow) emoji. Each also offers five alternate skin tone options based on the Fitzpatrick scale for standard dermatological representation, as adopted by the Unicode Consortium.

How to import your Aperture library into Photos for OS X

If you're moving from Aperture to Photos for OS X, the first thing you'll need to do is import your library.

Apple's pulling the plug on future Aperture development. It still works with OS X Yosemite, but Photos for OS X is the future. Luckily, importing your existing Aperture library is easy. You can either do it during initial setup and make it your main Photos library, or you can import it at any time and make it an additional library. Once you've imported your library into Photos, you can still use the old version in Aperture. They won't stay in sync from that point on, but they will both remain accessible to their respective apps.
