- For certain people we know the easiest way…to share photos is still via email.…It's just the way it is.…And it's easy here in Photos for OS X,…I'm gonna show you right now.…I have this image,…I wanna share it with a few folks.…Go to my Share button,…this time I'm gonna choose Mail.…It will launch Mail, if it's not already launched,…bring up a message right here.…And I can say who I'm going to send it To,…type that in right there,…and then let's take a look at Message Size right here.…
You see it's not an overly large photo,…it's already been scaled down,…and the Image Size is Actual Size,…which in this case is not a bad thing.…But now if you were attaching a big photo…the Image Size might be too big…and some people might receive it…and go, "Oh my gosh, what did you send me here?"…So you can adjust that here in the Image Size popup.…You have Small,…you also have Medium, Large,…and then of course, Actual Size.…Now how big these photos actually are…when you use these different sizes…depends on the starting point for the photo.…

Derrick then details the powerful image editing and sharing options, and shows how to build photo-based projects such as slideshows, greeting cards, books, calendars, and prints directly from Photos.
