    I am a bit more familiar with the predecessor, iPhoto, but the new Photos is giving me issues. It seems to import all my photos in a chronological order (instead of the much preferred "Events"), but then it does not let me select multiple pics and drag them to pre-made albums. For instance, Mrs. EDJ takes LOTS of photos of our dogs. When I am importing pics from our phones to clean up the Camera Rolls, I normally select them all in iPhoto and drag them over to the pre made "Dogs" album. Voila! A place for everything, and everything in its place. However, I'm not able to do that in Photos.

    I'm thinking I need a walk-through or a "Photos for Dummies" lesson on working with it.

    Any suggestions? (Besides the trolling ones to get more brain cells, or dummy down to a PC or some other ignorant, superiority-complex meanness).

    Thanks!

    Press command Q when in Photos.
    Open LR.

    Probably not much help, but I'm not having that problem. I can select multiple photos and drag them in to my albums.
