Apple Photos is the successor to both the popular iPhoto and the powerful Aperture. It inherits the best of both, and yet it is something more. 

But to get the most out of it, you'll need to understand how it works and learn a few tricks for managing your images effectively. 

So in this video tutorial from my course, Apple Photos for Photographers, you'll learn how to use albums, which are a great tool for grouping images. You'll learn to create and add images to an album, and then, we'll use Smart Albums as a "rules-based search" to find images based on a list of criteria.
