Pictures and Videos

with Sam Daniels


Import your photos and videos into your photo library so you can organize and edit them with Photos. You can import photos and videos in a variety of ways:

Using iCloud: Turn on iCloud Photos on your Mac and iOS devices to access your entire library automatically. Or, you can turn on My Photo Stream to import only your most recent photos. (If you use iCloud Photos, you don’t need to use My Photo Stream.) See Use iCloud Photos to store photos.

From cameras or mobile devices: Connect a camera, iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, or other mobile device and import photos and videos from the device. See Import photos from a camera or phone.

From storage media: Import photos or videos saved on a hard disk or other storage device. See Import photos from hard disks, DVDs, and other devices.

From other apps: Import photos and videos sent to you in an email or text message, or downloaded from Safari. See Import photos from Mail, Safari, and other apps.
