Chris answers a few questions that have come in lately.
I just spent an hour playing with the new Apple Photos App and here are a few very early first impressions.
Let’s get the most important question out of the way right now: no, it’s not a full replacement for Aperture or Lightroom. Will that hinder its success? I don’t think it will. And here’s why.
