Install for Improvements to Photos
If you're still running macOS Catalina or older, note that macOS Big Sur brings significant changes to the Photos app.
With macOS Big Sur on board, you'll enjoy better video editing. Specifically, adjustments, filters, and cropping are now supported for video editing so you can rotate, increase exposure, or even apply filters to your videos.
You also get improved photo editing. You can apply a new Vibrance effect to photos and adjust the intensity of filters and Portrait Lighting effects.
There is an improved Retouch tool which uses advanced machine learning to remove blemishes, dust specks, and other objects from your photos.
You can now add context to photos and videos with captions. And if you have iCloud Photos enabled, your captions sync across all your devices, including captions you add on an iPhone or iPad.
macOS Big Sur also includes improved navigation and enhancements to the app's Memories feature including a larger selection of music.
It's also worth noting that macOS Big Sur 11.2.3, macOS Big Sur 11.2.2, macOS Big Sur 11.2.1, macOS Big Sur 11.2, and macOS Big Sur 11.1 allow Mac users to edit Apple ProRAW photos in the Photos application.
If that's a feature you'll take advantage of, upgrade your Mac today.
