Tutorial Description

Continuing on from last week as promised - A look at the new Camera app as well as the new editing controls in the new Photos App.

The Camera App has been updated with some new features (depending on your iOS device) but the main changes are in the Photos App. iPhoto for iOS is no more and photo editing has been enhanced in the Photos App. You can switch between "easy" editing or open up controls for fine grained adjustments for light, colour or B/W.

The new Photo Extensions in iOS 8 also allow you to utilise the photo editing capabilities of other installed photo editors, right from within the Photos App. I demonstrate by using Camera+ on the iPhone.

When you edit a photo do you add a layer? Can you save a copy of the edited photo, so you have both the original and the edited photo?


No, you don't add a layer. At the current release you do have to save a copy so you have the original. When iCloud Photo Library is available, you'll be able to save but revert if required.
