New Online Course! Photos for macOS Catalina and iPadOS

With Photos for macOS, you can easily manage, enhance, and share a large library of images. And thanks to macOS Catalina and iPadOS, the latest version offers a new level of compatibility across devices, aligning the user experience as well the editing and AI-powered organization tools.


In this course, Derrick Story takes you on a detailed exploration of this powerful app. Learn how to manage thousands of pictures quickly and easily, and edit and enhance the color, contrast, and compositions of images and video with the built-in editing tools. Derrick also explains how to export images, create slideshows, and prepare photos for printing. Along the way, he highlights the new features that make Photos for macOS Catalina such an important upgrade.

Here are some of the topics covered:

  • What's new in Photos for macOS and iPadOS
  • Creating new Photos libraries
  • The latest Editing Extensions for Photos
  • Importing images
  • Enabling iCloud syncing
  • Backing up a Photos library
  • Organizing images
  • Deleting, removing, and hiding images
  • Editing videos
  • Editing images
  • Working with pictures
  • Exporting images
  • Creating slideshows
  • Printing at home

The thing that I really like about this course, is that I show you the best of both worlds. Some techniques are better on the Mac, while other things, such as editing your videos, are actually better suited for the iPad version of Photos.

And regardless of which way you go, all of your work is automatically backed up to iCloud and shared across all devices. It's really a wonderful workflow. Check out the course intro video.
