I like the new Photos for OS X application on the Mac (I just finished writing a book about it!), but not everyone is ready to switch from iPhoto or Aperture. However, Apple is certainly ready, because it opens Photos automatically whenever you connect a camera or a memory card.
In my most recent column for The Seattle Times, I explain how to make Photos take the hint if you’re not ready to use it yet: Apple dumps iPhoto and Aperture, but you don’t have to.
