Apple Shares Two New Tutorials for Memories Feature in Photos App

Since May, Apple has been sharing a series of iPhone 7 photography tutorial videos both on a dedicated photography how-to website and its YouTube channel, and today, there are two new tutorial videos, this time featuring the Memories function in Photos.

The two new videos walk users through customizing Memories in the Photos app and then sharing Memories on social networks. Each video is 40 seconds in length and includes quick step-by-step visual instructions.



Apple first started highlighting the Memories feature in both a full-length iPhone 7 ad and its first Memories tutorial video, both of which were released yesterday.

Many of Apple's photography tutorials are simple and are aimed at users who are not familiar with the photo taking capabilities of their iPhones. Topics covered include how to shoot a close-up, how to shoot a vertical panorama, how to shoot a selfie with a timer, and how to shoot without a flash. Some also include general photography tips and cover topics like portraits, unique angles, street light, action, and more.

I remember the days, when IOS was so easy to use, we didn't need tutorials

Hard to compete with Google Photos. You just have to give them access to your life. Most don't mind.

I almost like Memories. I wish there was a way to choose any photo though.

You can choose your photos. You can make memories out of albums. Put whatever photos you want in an album. Perhaps you should watch the How To videos.

When the iPhone Memories function came out, I was really surprised at how well it worked. I occasionally house-sit for some friends and feed their cats. I occasionally took cat pics over 2 or 3 years. They were all geotagged to the same location, so Memories made a little album. I exported the animated video it made almost untouched (I took out one photo that was off center) and played it for them. It almost brought them to tears.

I've been a Google Photo user since it was Picasa, and I don't see how Google Photos is so up there that Apple cannot compete with them. The only thing people like about Google Photos is that Google giving "unlimited" storage by recompressing your photos to smaller sizes.

These memories could be great if you could select just the best photos to use.

You can!

I'm a very biased apple fanboy, but I have to say that Google Photos offers a better service than Apple's... The people and object recognition system is more rock solid, I understand it's done online but I don't care much about privacy when it comes to family photos. We're not very important, and I don't upload papers or my artworks on it.

The "Free" option for Google photos only compresses photos over 16MP and then only down to 16MP. Not sure about you but my iPhone 7 only has a 12MP camera so nothing is getting compressed. My DSLR (older) is only 12MP as well.

I would ditch Google photos yesterday if Apple gave us unlimited Photo storage. Or gave us a decent family price for iCloud storage, like I get with Office 365 Home, $99 for 5 people, each gets 1TB of OneDrive plus Office 2016. The same thing would cost me $500 for my family.

Agreed Google Photos is fantastic. It is fast and super simple to use/share. I also do not keep any documents on Google cloud or even use their email. I keep my doc's one One Drive which works great with Apple products.

Would be better if they offered a deal like Flickr (1tb no compression). To be fair, Google's compression is unnoticeable for non photographers.

Oddly, the share video highlights Facebook sharing, it will be removed in iOS 11.


won't it still be there, just the onus is on facebook to reimplement it through a share sheet? much the same as sharing to any other app
