Question: Is the photos built in print services finishing on September 30 2018

Hi everyone

On going to Photos projects today, got this message - see image. Does this mean that you won't be able to order calendars and books directly through Apple in future. Did I miss something?

Thanks

Kevin

no idea but it sure sounds clear - I get that today with High Sierra 10.13.6 too


with no Time Capsule, no print products, etc it sure seems that Apple is exiting the consumer market just like it exited teh professional market a few years ago


Surprising since Photos and print products seems to closely fit their IOS device growth stragety

You'd better take this warning seriously, that you will not be able to order any print products from Apple using Photos, when Photos 4.0 on Mojave comes out.

iPhoto is now giving the same warning, btw.


The only project extensions I could find to create a book - Mimeo Photos - keeps crashing, when I try to create a book in Photos with it.

I just got the same message with High Sierra 10.13.6 (the new update). When clicking on the button to open the App Store I see these apps:

It sure looks like Apple might be bailing out of the print products business.

Thank you. It is no longer necessary for me, because the most recent upgrade to version 2.0.1 of Mimeo fixed the crashes. Mimeo is now behaving as expected for me and working as described here:

And this upgrade makes it also possible to start with a nearly empty book and to add more photos later. that is a nice improvement. Having to start with all photos at once and having them out-placed has been horrible.

Perhaps you can help this user: creating offline albums in Photos for Mac

It would make Mimeo much more versatile, if it allowed us to work offline.

Like the user in the linked discussion, I like to work on photo project when I am traveling during long distance flights or long train rides, or when being on a vacation at remote places without internet, in a rustic cabin or in a tent.

Then I have the most time to create projects. Is it really necessary to require an internet connection to be able to change the layout of book pages, to add captions, to add photos?

no one knows for sure since Apple has not really made any announcements - for sure converting them to PDFs -- Preview a print project in Photos or iPhoto to avoid issues ... -- will allow you to save them and print through another service like Presto Photo later
