I have an iMac and currently download my photos to iPhoto, to edit etc. However the photos do not then sync to the Photos app, which is a bit frustrating. Can anyone help advise how I can download photos from my camera to iPhoto and my Mac then automatically updates the Photos app? Many thanks

They are two separate Apps with different Libraries so I do not know how you can get them to sync.

Is there any specific reason why you are using both?

Hi - I download my photos from my camera to iPhoto, to then edit them etc. But iCloud takes its upload from the Photos App.

You would be better importing your iPhoto Library into Photos and only using the one Application.

Photos has much better Editing Tools
