“I have actually tried both apps on my MacBook and iMac (iPhoto 9.6.1 still works well with Mac OS). Based on what I have experienced, pictures and videos can be shared between the two, and I should say it’s a great improvement for Photos app with faster transferring speed and flatting operation interface. However, good as new Photos app is, problems also come along with it.”

  • 3. Pictures stored in iPhoto/Photos app can’t be easily accessed from another program, such as Photoshop.
  • 4. Both two photo apps will compress image size on exporting.
  • 5. The iCloud service can’t do the job properly when syncing locally stored photo library.
  • 6. Photos app doesn’t recognize my iPhone when plugged into another Mac OS device.
  • 7. Test shows that the Photos library is about 50% bigger in memory size than the iPhoto library.
