Photos for OS X isn't going to be a pro app — and that's okay

After the first developer beta of Photos was released last week along with OS X 10.10.3, I got a lot of questions about the app. Little questions, like "Can you still make books and cards?" (Yes.) But also big-picture questions. Is this the next generation of photo management? Will it be enough...
