Introducing “Photos: A Take Control Crash Course”

Note: This story has not been updated for several years.


So this summer I wrote an ebook: Photos: A Take Control Crash Course.

More accurately, I wrote an entirely new edition of my old Take Control ebook about Photos. The old book covered Photos for Mac 1.0 and was updated last fall with the changes to Photos that came with El Capitan.

This year’s macOS Sierra release includes the biggest update to Photos yet, and there were huge additions to the Photos app on iOS, as well. Since Apple really does seem to view Photos as a single app that spans all of its platforms, it made sense to update the book to cover not just all the changes to Photos on the Mac, but also to cover the features of Photos on iOS. So this book does both, along with giving a nod to watchOS and tvOS.

You can buy the book here for $10. (If you bought my old book about Photos, check out your email—you should’ve received an upgrade offer to the new version.)
