Default What MAC SW to replace iPhoto with under El Crapitan

I have used iPhoto since it came out.

Since Apple has now scuttled it I am looking for a replacement that is just as simple.

Photo shop & Light room are way too complicated to be of use to me as I own both.

I need simple image management with simple editing.

Any sugestions will be most welcome.

Why not simply use "Photos", which is the name of the new version of the Apple photo software?

Photos is unusable since there is no way to display the filename in album view only one photo at a time.

This is the stupidest software yet from apple.

That hardly makes it "unusable" for most people.

I am still using Aperture for most of my photos, but what comes out of my iPhone ends up in "Photos", yes. I did not notice it was much worse than iPhoto.

This being said, all really depends on what you want to do with your pictures.

I have good news for you: iPhoto works under El Capitan. You just need to install version 9.6.1 (tried it at home, it works).

To do that you may need to delete iPhoto and redownload it from the Apple store.

So, Jerome,

Are you seeing the titles where Will can't?

Will be great if following your procedure solves his gripe with the iPhoto replacement!

I can't see the titles in "Photos", but it is not relevant to the question. Will said he cannot use "iPhoto" under El Capitan. "iPhoto", the old program who can display file names, still works under El Capitan, so Will just needs to reinstall it.

For the Apple-specific stuff all has been written already.

If you want to try something different, you might try a port of digikam.

Best regards,
Michael

Since you use mac photo editor there is a good option https://macphun.com/luminar. I used to edit my pics with it when I had Apple - it's simple, has lot of tools, and what is the most important for beginners, there are video tutorials on how to use these tools.
