I’ve had the Apple TV for a week now, and I’m still finding useful things out each day. Previously I’d used the Remote App on the Apple Watch to control my Apple TV. Very cool never to ever lose your Apple Remote again. Anyhow, as I’m working away at my…

Photos for Mac is here!  Well it's been out for a few weeks, but always best to let things settle down a bit!

Photos is the new photo management application to replace iPhoto and Aperture. Not a standalone application, Photos is baked into OS X, with deep integration with iCloud Photo Library. In this first of a two part series, I take a look at some of the preparation tasks required before migration, as well as the migration process itself.

In this show I take a look at migrating from a single Aperture or iPhoto library using iCloud Photo Library. I also take a look at using iCloud Photo Library to sync additional libraries. 

In the next show, I'll be taking a look at using Photos and examining some of its new features. 

In this week's iOS show (SCOI0214), I take a refresher look at Photos for iOS.

The full tutorial covers:

* Introduction
* Preparation
* Running Photos
* Syncing to iCloud Photo Library
* Migrating Additional Libraries
* Using Multiple Libraries
* Moving System Library

Don,

Two serious Photos problems for me.

When I convert my Aperture library to Photos my file name disappeared from under the photo. If that file name had meaning—in my case it has date and subject—that's a big problem. The file name DOES show in the Info panel (command-I), but if I want it to show under the photo I have to, in the Info panel, copy it from the File Name field and paste it into the Title field—really impractical for thousands of photos. Have you got a solution for that.

And I can no longer sort my photos by file name. As far as I can see there's no solution for that.

Many of you know Julie – she's asking for our help. It has been a stellar start but more is needed to reach the goal. Please help out if you can. 
Pretty much anyone who knows me at this point knows how passionate I am about WordPress. I've been teaching myself to be a developer for a couple of years now, but still struggle to put it all together. The folks at Flywheel are offering just the course I've been looking for  -- in Omaha.  This...

Something on workflows? i.e. integrating applications to get things done.
e.g. I use email, feedly, evernote, and onmifoucs in a pattern that progresses my workflow and allows me to keep uptodate.

That all bodes very well then. The shadow side of the boat captured really well plus the light sky above didn't burn out. You can't really do any better than that.

I'll be attending - in fact ScreenCastsOnline.com is the Macstock Classic sponsor for this event. 

Would be great to meet up with a lot of the old crew from Macworld plus great to meet with new friends too!

It's only a small event so don't delay, tickets are limited and could well sell out quickly.
 
Missed having Macworld this year?

Come to Macstock 2015 and the Midwest MacBBQ!

This Mac-tastic double-header grassroots effort is taking place June 20th and features speakers from throughout the Apple podcasting community including: +Allison Sheridan , +Chuck Joiner , +Guy Serle , +Julie Kuehl , +Eric Erickson and myself! (more coming soon)

We're still working out session details and a few other kinks, so while that's happening we're offering a limited time launch special on tickets...but only until May 4th.

Check it out: http://macstockconferenceandexpo.com and http://midwestmacbbq.com

With Photos on the Mac being released and iCloud Photo Library out of beta, it’s time to take another look on iOS. 

In this week’s Mac show (SCOM0500) I demonstrate how to migrate your iPhoto or Aperture library to Photos. 

You can access all your migrated videos and photos on your iPad or iPhone using iCloud Photo Library, as well as editing them, and having those edits replicated across all your devices.

The full tutorial covers:

* Initial Settings
* Optimise Storage
* My Photo Stream
* Using Photos
* iCloud Photo Sharing

Thanks Don for making it clear for me (although you already very clearly explained it in your last show, I wasn’t sure I had fully grasped it).
I’ll probably go the “slow” way otherwise I guess I’ll never use Photos...

Safely back in the UK and in catchup mode following my recent extended holiday to the UAE, India and Napal. Despite the best of intentions, I wasn’t able to post many photos of the trip. There are various reasons, but they may not hold up due to the fact…

Don, you work so hard so it's especially good to hear you all had such a great trip. I've seen a few images from your travels & it looked a wonderful experience. The images & video first and foremost are for you all to enjoy & to remind you of your adventures. Just pleased to know you took the time for yourselves.

I just hope this is a model that 'Photos' will follow. Nowhere close to Aperture for me at the moment. (And Lightroom just doesn't suit my workflow)
