Chris says that upgrading to OS 10.3 will bring Apple's new Photos app on your Mac. He says it's pretty good, but it has a few flaws and bugs. One bug is that it will delete any pictures on your desktop in favor of your photos in iCloud. So if you don't have anything on your laptop you care about, go for it. it'll all be well. But Chris didn't lose any of his. They migrated everything to his Photos app with no problem, only reorganizing some. Chris says Photos is an update from iPhoto, but a clear downgrade from Aperture. So if you're an Aperture user, keep using it for awhile until Apple updates Photos to have more Aperture features. Photos is really fast, however, and that's a good thing. Leo also hears that Apple will allow third party extensions. Chris says there is a plugins folder in there and in time, Apple will do that with an SDK.

Don't forget our current assignment - "Asleep." Take a photo of, about or otherwise concerning the concept of "Asleep" and then post it to the Tech Guy Group on Flickr. Make sure to tag it with the word "Asleep" as well! And if Chris likes it, it could end up on next month's photo contest review segment!
