Join Derrick Story for an in-depth discussion in this video Touring the Photos interface, part of Learning Photos for OS X.
- Let's take a tour of our new home,…at least our new home for a while,…the Photos for OS10 application here.…I'm going to start out at the top,…and you'll notice we have the standard issue menu bar.…File, Edit, all that good stuff.…Now if you're not a menu bar person,…that's okay if you're not,…you just click on the green maximize button,…and it goes away. Yeah! Nice and clean.…Now if you do like that menu bar,…just push that mouse up to the top there,…that mouse pointer, click back on the green button…and it returns again.…
Now, in the center of the application here,…we have some tabs, Photos, which we're looking at right now.…We're in the Moments view.…Shared, we haven't shared anything yet.…It's waiting for us.…Albums, all sorts of good albums,…Panoramas, Last Import, all that good stuff.…And Projects.…We haven't created any Projects yet,…but I'm looking forward to doing it…because they're a lot of fun.…If I go back to Photos, right here,…and if I want to go back in time,…I go to the arrow key right here, the little arrow button.…
