Another UI Fail from Apple. Photos has no Open With… option. I’m sure I’m not the only one who used this in iPhoto all the damn time. What reason could there possibly be for this change?
You can export photos and Open With… in Finder, which is totally inconvenient. On top of that, you can’t name the file during the export process. You’re supposed to have done that ahead of time.
I guess the crappy new way Photos “organizes” stuff wasn’t enough of a downgrade.
The easy Open With… workaround we shouldn’t have to do
1 Select the photo or photos you want to open in a 3rd-party app.
2 Right click, select Share, and choose Mail. Any desktop mail app should work, although I haven’t tested others.
3 Right-click and Mail gives you a proper Open With… option.
4 Open in your app of choice.
The quality and usefulness of Apple software is sliding downhill. It makes me sad.
