    Dear Paul,

    Your instructions mystified me until I realized that in order to make the Edit button appear in the toolbar, it is not enough to select a photo. One has to double-click on it. Perhaps you should send a correction?

    Kind regards,
    Michael Graubart.

    It doesn’t work like that for me. All is well until I click “Extensions”. Then I get a different dialog box. I see Markup in it but clicking on it results in nothing. I have Photos Version 1.5 (370.42.0) in OS X Version 1.5 (370.42.0)

    My iPhoto 9.5.1 does not have this editing option, quite a different display of edit choices.

    Which iPhoto version is this ?

    I can get the same drawing with converting the photo to pdf format, then edit.

      Photos is different from iPhoto, iPhoto is outdated. Photos is the new default image app for Mac and iOS.

    Doesn’t work for me either…Same version 1.5. I don’t have “sliders”. I installed an extension from Apple, Orion Markup Express, and still couldn’t get anything to work.

    FFS are we all 5yrs old now? That’s the last time I think I drew on a photo.

    Dear Paul.
    Your daily OSX is valuable, thank you so much. I have a question which is not meant for publishing as it has to do with a beta version. I am on 10.13 Beta and have great problems with editing. I can see all the “instruments” like White balance and curves and all the other. The problem is that I don’t seem able to work with them manually. I can click automatic, but I want to overrule light and shadow and color and … I am sure you have access to the Beta version, and hope you could look into this and perhaps bring me and everybody else a solution. Thanks in advance. ūüėä

    Wow! I now have a pic of a cute kitten telling me in a speech bubble “This is FAB!”

    I want to be able to annotate pix of how to do beading, so this will be very useful. Yes, could take a pic, save as pdf and then annotate that … but this cuts out a load of steps.

    So, thanks for the Tip. Never knew Photos could do this.

    I do not have these options in my Photo app. I have an EDIT button (not the hamburger icon). When I click EDIT, I receive all of the same options on the right except for the Extensions option. What gives?
