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:
* Running Photos
* Syncing to iCloud Photo Library
* Migrating Additional Libraries
* Using Multiple Libraries
* Moving System Library
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.
What would you like to see included?
e.g. I use email, feedly, evernote, and onmifoucs in a pattern that progresses my workflow and allows me to keep uptodate.
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.

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
I’ll probably go the “slow” way otherwise I guess I’ll never use Photos...
