iOS 8 - #5 - Photo Management Description

Don McAllister


Photo management has changed in iOS8 with some radical changes. Camera Roll has gone (for now) and Photostream view has also gone.
iOS8 is currently in an interim phase with the launch of iPhoto Cloud Library not yet announced, and its absence is causing some confusion.
This episode takes you through the current state of photo management on iOS8 with an update of how it works at the current release.

iOS 8 - #7 - iCloud Photo Library (Beta)
iOS 8.1 is out and with it some new functionality, as well as public access to the iCloud Photo Library (Beta).

iOS 8 - #6 - Camera and Photos App
Continuing on from last week as promised - A look at the new Camera app as well as the new editing controls in the new Photos App.
The Camera App has been updated with some new features (depending on your iOS device) but the main changes are in the Photos App. iPhoto for iOS is no more and photo editing has been enhanced in the Photos App. You can switch between "easy" editing or open up controls for fine grained adjustments for light, colour or B/W.
The new Photo Extensions in iOS 8 also allow you to utilise the photo editing capabilities of other installed photo editors, right from within the Photos App. I demonstrate by using Camera+ on the iPhone.
