Working with photos online
Windows 10’s Photos app is meant to be a pleasing, easy way to look at your picture collection, coupled with some easy-to-use photo-editing capabilities. If your expectations go a little bit outside that box, you’re going to be very disappointed.
In this chapter, you find an introduction to what Photos can and can’t do. A quick tour shows you how to navigate around the Photos app. Then I explain how to edit with the simple but surprisingly powerful Photo tools and how to import images from your camera (or phone) with Photos. And I show you how to organize pics in your very own Albums.
Finally, if the Photos app doesn’t do what you want — and unless your needs are very modest, it won’t — I talk about the many photo storage and management apps available on the Internet. You may be surprised how much photo moxie is available, free, in the cloud.
