Hi Gary - one minor point I noticed when you showed that you can drag a photo from Photos to serve as a background (1:40 mark on your video) a message appeared that the photo would be low res. It would seem if you want the high quality version you need to drag it to the drive first I’ve noticed this same low res issue when I dragged and dropped from Photos to Pixelmator Pro
Carlos: I noticed that too. It seems to be new. Maybe a bug. I experimented and found that if you hold the Shift key down and drag it will give you the full resolution version. But you have to press and hold Shift before you start to drag. Weird.
I make two albums in Photos, one is Desktop and the other is Screensaver. Using those is easier.
In my photos folderI just right click on the photo I want to use and left click on share.
Then I have the option to Set Desktop Picture. Seems much easier to me.
