How can I sync photos from my iPad to Mac using iPhoto?

Episode 1228 (53:34)

Jim from Los Angeles, CA
Apple Photos

Jim wants to be able to use his iPad to make annotations on photos and then sync them to his Mac. But Apple has killed iPhoto, and the photos won't sync to iPhoto on the Mac anymore. Leo says that he can't keep using iPhoto because Apple moved to Apple Photos, which won't talk to his old iPhoto desktop app. So Jim will have to update his desktop and start using Apple Photos. Then it'll sync again.

Another option is Adobe Lightroom, but it's $200. The good news is that the iPad version is free, though. Leo also recommends reading a book on Apple Photos. It's got some really great features that make it much better than iPhoto, but some of those features aren't obvious to discover.
