View photo bursts and select shots to work with in Photos on Mac
With some models of iPhone and iPad, you can shoot a burst of photos in rapid succession, enabling you to get a good shot of fast-moving subjects. When you import a photo burst into Photos, it appears in the Imported album and in the Bursts album. When you open a burst, you can view all the shots in the burst and select your favorites to work with.
In the Photos app on your Mac, double-click the burst in the Imported album or in the Bursts album in the sidebar.
To select photos from the burst, click the Make a Selection button in the upper-left corner of the photo.
Click each photo that you want to save as an individual photo, then click the circle in the lower-right corner to mark the photo as selected.
When you’ve finished selecting photos, click Done.
Do one of the following:
Keep the selected photos and delete the others in the burst: Click Keep Only Selection.
The selected photos appear individually in the Imported album, and unselected photos are placed in the Recently Deleted album. The burst no longer appears in the Imported album or in the Burst album.
Make the selected photos appear individually and keep all of the photos in the burst: Click Keep Everything.
The selected photos appear individually, and the photo burst remains unchanged.
