Updating thumbnails in iphoto
— is the start of a notable shift in how we treat digital photos.
If you enable i Cloud Photo Library, the Photos app on your Mac uploads the photos in your library to i Cloud.
Later that month, Adobe announced Photoshop Lightroom CC with a focus not just on new features, but also on how the photo management software is part of a broader mobile workflow that includes photos on tablets and phones.
What may seem a minor convenience — look, you can take a picture with your i Phone and it appears on your Mac!
Those upgrading from i Photo and Aperture can continue to use Photos without the i Cloud component.
Depending on the size of your library and the speed of your Internet connection, this process will likely take a while — possibly days.
(A quick reminder: i Cloud Photo Library is required to use the new Photos application.
