    Your review of Photo’s editing capabilities is great! In iPhoto I could bring up to different but very similar photos for comparison of which one I wanted to use. Is there a way to do this in Photos?

    If those photos were taken at the same time, then they should be right next to each other in All Photos. Just look at them there. Enlarge the thumbnails as big as you want.

    Excellent video. On my live view shots I don’t see the Live view icon in the upper left hand corner when I open it in Photos. I also don’t see the Live, Loop, Bounce, and Long Exposure selections on the bottom right. I am currently using MacOS High Sierra, do I need a more up todate operating system for these functions to work? If not, any other suggestions? Would love to see videos on advanced editing in the Photos App.

    James: I think that is the case. I’m not sure when those features were added, but High Sierra is 2 versions back so I wouldn’t expect to have it there.

    Thanks for the great video, Gary – I learned a lot of new tips. Is there a way I can save this to my Pinterest folder so I can go back and look at it? I couldn’t figure it out, if there is a way. Thanks!

    Sandy: Anything you create in Photos you can drag and drop to a website like Pinterest to upload the photo there.

    How can you add filters like watercolor, sketch, infrared and other special effects like those to the Photos App? Or what software can you purchase to do that?

    k.kurts: You’d need an external editor for things like that. You’ve got a whole range from free ones like SeaShore all the way up to Photoshop. There is a lot in the middle: Pixelmator, Acorn, Affinity Photo. I’d take the time to look at those and see which one may fit your needs.
