After waiting for a long time, Apple has released the first version of Photos tests for OS X, the native photo application that replaces iPhoto in the operating system of Macs. It has done so in the beta (of tests) of OS X 10.10.3 that just published in the developer portal.
Right now, the only way to manage the photos that we are all uploading to the iCloud Photo Library cloud is to enter icloud.com and then use the Photos web application. Mac users had for years the iPhoto application, which also allowed to take photos of an iPhone and save them in our library but with the increase in the number of photos that most users did was too small. The bigger your photo database was, the slower it became. After uploading tens of thousands of photos, it became practically impossible to use, and perhaps for this reason, Apple decided to do a clean slate, programming a new application to manage photos from scratch. In addition, they did it by killing iPhoto long before it was ready, leaving only that web application in iCloud to manage the photos, and also with a very primitive version of it that until very recently was little more than an image viewer without more .
The new application allows, like the iOS Photos App, browse the photos we have in iCloud Photo Library for moments, collections or years, as well as all the photos together or albums. It will also allow to upload to iCloud all the photos that we want from our Mac, as well as edit them to change their tone, contrast, brightness or cuts, without losing the original version of the image. All these changes will be synchronized automatically with our iPhone or iPad, so if we edit an image on any of these devices, everyone else will see the edited photo without having to do anything else.
Something that does not have the iOS Photos App and that will have the OS X, is the ability to print them, as well as ask for photo books directly from the application. Of course, it will be more comfortable and faster than the web version of it, and will correct, finally, an endemic problem that Apple has been suffering for many years and that so far have not been solved. On the website of the company says that the Photos App for OS X will be available in the Spring of this year, it is assumed that in the northern hemisphere of the planet, without a specific date determined. Presumably it will come with version 10.10.3, since this version of tests takes it.
