How to keep your photos safe

 

Even if you delete a photo from your Mac, it’s still stored in iCloud. iCloud stores all of the photos you take in iCloud Photos, and downloads these photos and videos to your Mac as space is available. If you want to delete a photo or video from only your Mac, you can do so without affecting the copy that’s stored in iCloud Photos.

 

How to share photos with others

 

If you want to share photos with someone but don’t want to give them access to your entire photo library, there are a few different ways you can go about it. One option is to create a shared photo album on iCloud. This will allow you and the other person to access and add photos to the album from any device, as long as you’re both logged in to iCloud.

Another option is to use Airdrop. This is a quick and easy way to share photos with someone nearby, without having to go through the process of setting up an iCloud account or sharing album. To use Airdrop, both you and the other person need to have an iPhone or iPad with Airdrop turned on. Once you’ve done that, simply open the Photos app on your device and select the photos you want to share. Then tap the share icon (the square with an arrow pointing up) and choose the Airdrop option. The other person will then be able to see the photos you’re trying to share and can choose whether or not to accept them.

Click the Albums tab.

Click “My Photo Stream” or “iCloud Photo Library.”

In the menu bar at the top of the screen, click “Go” and then “Pictures.” This will open a new Finder window that shows all of the folders and files in your Pictures folder. If you have stored any photos in other locations on your Macbook, you can access them by clicking the “All My Files” option in the sidebar. To delete a photo, simply right-click on it and select “Delete.”

Assuming you want to take better photos with the camera on your MacBook, here are a few tips:

-Use the right lighting. Make sure the room is well lit, or go outside and take advantage of natural light. Avoid using flash whenever possible.

-Compose your shots carefully. Think about what you want to include in the frame, and arrange your subject matter accordingly.

-Pay attention to detail. Zoom in on small details that you want to highlight, or use editing software to crop out distractions.

-Experiment with different settings and filters. With digital photography, you can always delete anything that doesn’t turn out the way you want it to. So don’t be afraid to play around and see what looks best!

Now that you have a general idea of how to take photos that are sharp and properly exposed, it’s time to focus on the task of organization. With the advent of digital photography, many people have ended up with large numbers of photos on their computers. And if you’re not careful, it can be easy to end up with a jumbled mess of images that are difficult to find and sort through.

Here are a few tips for organizing your photos:

-Create folders for different types of photos. For example, you could have folders for family, friends, travel, etc.
-Within each folder, create sub-folders for different time periods or events. For example, if you have a folder for travel photos, you could create sub-folders for each trip you’ve taken.
-Be consistent in how you name your photo files. For example, use dates or locations in the file name so that it will be easy to find a specific photo later on.
-Regularly backup your photos to an external hard drive or cloud storage service. This will help ensure that your photos are safe in case your computer crashes or is damaged.
