Apple Photos Course 2: Capture and Import

How to use the Camera App and get all your pictures into Photos


  • You don't understand the modes in the iPhone camera app, like Portrait and Live Photo
  • You want to save Messages and Email attachments in Photos
  • You want to clean up all your digital Post-it's and photo reminders
  • Photos aren't showing up where you thought they should

You love your photos. Your iPhone is always there to take beautiful pictures of your family and friends and the moments you want to save every day.

When you unboxed that iPhone for the first time, you became a photographer. You thought to yourself, "This is so cool!"

Then, suddenly... you find yourself buried in photos. You can’t find “that” picture. You’ve got a zillion albums. And you’re probably running out of space!

You know that your iPhone can do more... you're just not sure how. You want to use all those cool modes like Live Photo, Time Lapse, and Slo-Mo but you're not sure exactly how and when to choose them.

And when you do take a good shot, finding it again can be a pain.

Have you ever found yourself wishing you could make Apple Photos work the way you thought it would? Wondering why it hasn't made your life easier yet? Longing for the days of film and double prints? If this sounds like you...


Some people will say you should give up on the whole Apple ecosystem because it's too complicated.

Nonsense. And here's why...

As a lifelong photographer, an iPhone owner since day one, and a former Apple Genius, I can tell you that none of the other systems offer anything close to the complete iPhone to photobook experience that Apple does.

Harness the power in your iPhone to capture photos (and more!) in amazing new ways and stay organized, knowing exactly where everything is stored.

Photography has been a part of my life since I picked up a camera in high school. Along the way I was a travel and outdoor sports photographer, worked in the printing industry, and was an early Photoshop adopter. I've represented some of the leading digital photography studios before joining Apple as a member of both Genius and Creative teams. Throughout my career I have trained clients and the public on photography, digital photo organizing, desktop publishing and Apple software applications. I love working with people to delight and empower them through the creative use of technology.


Now that you've got your settings and storage options sorted (covered in Course 1), we'll move on to the fun part: capturing photos using the iPhone camera.

In this course, we'll look at the various features of the iPhone camera, including HDR, self-timer, filters, and more. We'll also look at video features like timelapse and slow-mo.

I'll also show you how to save and import your photos and how to use them in third-party photo apps.
