Third-party apps supplement the existing built-in tools that allow you to make prints or create books, slideshows, cards, and calendars
You can use these tools directly in the Photos app without having to visit a third party site, and there’s even a special spot in the Mac App Store to download the integrations. Here’s how it works:
Starting a Project – Downloading Apps
- Open Photos on Mac.
- Scroll down to “My Projects.”
- Click on “Go to App Store.”
- Clicking the link from Photos brings up a list of all Mac apps that integrate with Photos.
- Choose an App and click to download.
If you’ve already created a project, accessing a list of available apps is done by going to File –> Create and choosing the “More” App Store option.
Right now, there are six apps that are offering integration with Photos, but more apps will likely implement compatibility in the future. All of the apps are free, with the exception of the GoodTimes collage maker, which is priced at $19.99.
