Back in February, we learned that Apple was finally working towards ditching iPhoto, along with Aperture, with a new ‘Photos’ app for the latest version of OS X, ‘Yosemite’. Now the time has finally come and the new app has been pushed out in an update.
The developer version of the new photos application has actually been available for some time, adding in a more intuitive interface, with a similar look to the iOS photos app. Now the latest OS X Yosemite update has dropped iPhoto in favour of the new photos app.
Much like on the iOS photos app, the desktop variant will organize images in to ‘moments, collections and years’. Any edits made to your photos will also sync to those stored on your other Apple devices, like the iPhone and iPad.
The photos app comes with iCloud support built-in, allowing all of your images to be backed up in the cloud, although those who take a lot of pictures will probably run out of space pretty quick and will need to pay a monthly fee for additional storage.

KitGuru Says: iPhoto wasn't great to use, it has taken Apple a while but the long testing period is finally over and people can start to get their hands on the new photos app for OS X.
