Episode 30: Jason Snell Takes Control of Apple Photos

PhotoActive show

Summary: <p>If you want to learn all about something, write a book about it. Or, to avoid yourself a lot of work, read someone else’s book about it! Jason Snell has written several versions of his book Take Control of Photos, and he joins us to talk about what’s new in Apple’s photo software and ecosystem for the Mac and iOS devices. We also talk about making print books and calendars, features that were removed from Photos earlier this year, and how machine learning is going to play a more important role in photo software.</p> <p><strong>Sponsor</strong></p> <p><strong>Luma Labs</strong> - Everyone needs a camera strap that is both comfortable and practical.
