Your photos, everywhere

With iCloud Photo Library, your photos and videos are always with you, no matter which device you’re using. Take a photo on your iPhone and it appears automatically in Photos on your Mac. Turn iCloud Photo Library on in the iCloud pane of Photos preferences.

Make good photos great

You don’t have to be a pro to edit like one—use the Photos editing tools to give your pictures just the right look. Double-click a photo to view it, then click Edit in the toolbar. Use the editing tools to crop and straighten, remove red-eye or blemishes, improve light and color, and more.
