Brett’s Photos Tip: Change the cover photo for an album! Photos will automatically select the photo to use as an album cover and it’s typically the oldest picture in that album. But you can go into the album and long-tap whatever picture you prefer to be the album cover, and then select “Make Key Photo.” You can’t change the album cover of the Favorites or Recents albums.

Jeff’s Photos Tip: Sharing your photos on SmugMug. Great site for sharing photographs (and short videos) with others, in full quality, with no ads, on password-protected pages.  There is also an app for the iPhone, iPad, and Apple TV.  The basic plan is $75/year, but there are other plans. (I've been using SmugMug since Apple shut down its MobileMe web gallery service in 2012.)
