Use Photos and iCloud Photos to organize, edit, and share your photos and videos, and keep your entire photo library up to date on all your devices. With Photos, it’s easy to organize albums, find just the photo that you’re looking for, and make beautiful slideshows and photo gifts.
All-new Photos tab. View your new photos and memories by day, month, or year. It’s easier than ever to relive a specific moment by finding photos from that day—or click All Photos to quickly view your entire collection.
Relive meaningful moments. New Live Photos and videos that begin playing as you scroll bring your memories to life. Animations and transitions keep your place in the timeline switching between views, so you can switch between any view—like Days and All Photos—without losing your place.
People and Places. Photos understands your photos—who’s in them and what’s happening—and highlights important moments like birthdays, anniversaries, and trips. Make someone a favorite by clicking the Favorite button that appears on their photo, and they’ll always appear at the top of the album. Use the Places album to view all your photos with location data on an interactive map. Zoom in on the map to reveal more photos from a specific location.
Tip: You can add location info to any photo. While viewing the photo, click the Information button , click Assign a Location, then start typing. Choose your location from the list, or type it and press Return.
Find the perfect shot. Search your photos based on what’s in them, the date they were taken, people you’ve named in them, and their location—if provided. Photos identifies objects, scenes, and people, so you don’t have to use keywords to tag each photo.
Ask Siri. Say something like: “Show me photos of Sally.”
Best shots. Photos intelligently showcases the best shots in your library, removing duplicates and clutter.
Memory Movies. Now you can view Memory Movies on your Mac, and edit the duration, mood, and title. Edits sync to your other devices using iCloud Photos. Memory titles add additional fonts and avoid overlapping faces.
Get lively. With Live Photos, use the new Loop effect to continuously loop the action, or use Bounce to play the animation forward and backward. You can also use Long Exposure to blur motion in your Live Photos.
Use the Touch Bar. The Touch Bar displays a scrubber of all the photos and videos in your library, which you can use to speed your search for just the right photo. You can tap to mark a selected photo as a favorite , rotate it , or add it to a new or existing album.
When you edit a photo, tap buttons to crop, apply filters, adjust light, color, and other settings, or retouch your selection. Use additional options, such as enhance , compare , and more, depending on your selection in the previous Touch Bar.
