We like Photos, and we want to love Photos, but starting a relationship with any 1.0 software product can have its ups and downs. Glenn and Susie are joined by Jeff Carlson and Joe Kissell to discuss our experiences with Photos. From hidden maps to blown broadband limits, it hasn’t been the smoothest of rides so far, but we love the editing features and especially the speed compared to iPhoto. Now Apple just needs to make sharing a little easier to understand, especially for families. (iCloud Photo Library versus iCloud Photo Sharing versus My Photo Stream…little help?)
