Understanding the New Photos Layout

The latest OS upgrade to Apple devices has left some people scratching their head as far as the new Photos layout is concerned.  We are used to Albums, Events, etc. and now have to adjust to Moments and Collections. Here is a basic explanation of the newest Photos layout.

1. First off there is a very different look to the new Photos icon.  The icon has changed from a sunflower to a more graphic rainbow colored ‘flower’ concept. Here’s the new look.

2. Tap on the new Photos icon to see all your photos. When you are under the ‘Photos’ section in the bottom of the screen you will see one of 4 displays of photos. You can back up as far as Years. Click on one photo and it takes you to Collections. Collections is the new “Events”.  Tap on one photo under a collection and it will take you to ‘Moments’, and then tap on a photo to open it full screen.
