Framed in a whole new way.
For the first time, iCloud Photo Library gives you access to your entire Mac photo and video library from all your devices. If you shoot a snapshot, slo-mo or selfie on your iPhone, it’s automatically added to iCloud Photo Library as well — so it appears on your Mac, your iOS devices and iCloud.com. And since your collection is organised the same way across devices, navigating your library always feels familiar. Learn more
When you make changes on your Mac like editing a photo, marking a Favorite or adding to an album, they’re kept up to date on your iPhone, your iPad and iCloud.com. And vice versa — any changes made on your iOS devices are automatically reflected on your Mac.
iCloud Photo Library can help you make the most of the space on your devices. When you choose “Optimize Mac Storage”, it stores all your full-resolution photos and videos in iCloud in their original formats, while keeping storage-saving versions on each device. When you make an edit, the original image will download automatically. You get 5GB of free storage in iCloud — and as your library grows, you have the option to choose a plan for up to 1TB.
The beautiful all-new design of the Photos app uses Moments, Collections and Years views to automatically organise your photos and videos by time and location. With dramatically more screen space devoted to your photos, you can easily scan your entire library at a glance and quickly find the content you’re looking for. A new, streamlined toolbar puts the right controls at your fingertips, giving you instant access to the photos you’ve shared, the albums you’ve made and the projects you’ve created. And you can even use gestures to browse your entire photo collection with just a touch.
Create standout photos with a comprehensive set of powerful but easy‑to‑use editing tools. Choose Enhance to improve your photo with just a click. Or use Smart Sliders to adjust lighting and colour — behind the scenes, Photos uses intelligent algorithms to analyse your image and apply the right mix of adjustments.
Photos makes it simple to apply more advanced adjustments to your image. You can make precise edits by enabling the histogram, adding definition, reducing noise and more. You can even add a vignette for a final artistic touch.
