I have just switched to a Macbook from using Windows all my life and all of that intuitive stuff is no longer of any use to me! The Mac OS is SO different :(
All I want to know is how to open a photo in Photoshop directly from the "Photo" app. For the life of me I can't work out how to do it! PLEASE help, thanks.

You would not open a photo in Photoshop from the Photo app - that would be like opening a document in Word directly from the Pages app.

You should export the photo in question and then use Photoshop to open it either from Photoshop itself or from a Finder window.

In iPhoto right clicking on an image gives the option to "Edit in external program", which can be Photoshop, for example.

So yes, we could open a photo in Photoshop from iPhoto.

This no longer exists in Photos.app

Dragging the image onto the Photoshop's dock icon works, though.
