How to delete, recover, and eradicate pictures and videos in Photos for OS X

Photos for OS X lets you quickly and easily delete pictures and videos from both your Mac and the cloud.

Whether you're trying to free up storage, battling duplicates, eliminating personal photos no one else ever needs to see, or just cutting out the bad shots, Photos for OS X makes it easy to delete single or multiple pictures or videos. If you're using iCloud Photo Library, anything you delete on your Mac will also be deleted on all your other iCloud Photo Library-enabled devices, including your iPhone and/or iPad. Deleted pictures and videos can be recovered for up to 30 days, however, or can be deleted immediately and forever. Here's how!

How to access iCloud Photo Library on the web

How would you change Apple's Photos app?

Photos was one of the apps that not only drove people to buy the original iPhone, but helped them show off why they bought it. Yes, Mike Matas and team had us at pinch-to-zoom. Over the years, Apple introduced video, integrated with additional services like Flickr, and added basic editing tools and filters. The biggest improvements, however, came with iOS 7 — and a whole new Photos app. It offered all an all-new organizational model, based on Years, Collections, and Moments, much better, non-destructive editing tools, and integration with iCloud Photo Library, which promised better storage and sync for all photos and videos. In other words, along with Photos for Mac, Apple has made it a core part of their operating systems.

But that was then and this is now. So, what would you like to see Apple do with Photos next?

How to save high-resolution versions of your Instagram photos

Once you've posted a photo using Instagram, the incredibly popular social photo network, it's locked into its tiny filtered form. Instagram doesn't even let you download it after the fact — you need to screenshot it or resort to a third-part ripper, even for your own photos. What Instagram does let you do, however, is set it to save a high resolution "2048x2048" version of your final, filtered photo to your camera roll as you post it. (I put the resolution in quotes because it really seems to vary, sometimes a bit lower, sometimes higher.) To save those original photos, all you have to do is enable the feature.

How to get good audio while shooting video on your iPhone

It's easy to take and edit quick videos on the iPhone, but getting great audio isn't always as simple as pointing and shooting.

Here are a few of my favorite ways to avoid tinny or terrible sound when shooting iPhone video.
