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

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.

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

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.

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
