Apple’s new Photos app launched last month to developers for testing, but many were left disappointed as it was only available to try for those that had paid the $99/year fee to be a developer.

Today, Apple has made new preview of Photos for Mac available via the public beta channel of Yosemite. Those who have signed up to download public beta builds can update to OS X 10.10.3 now and try the new photo-organizing app.

It’s important to bear in mind that Photos for Mac is still in beta mode and may contain fairly large bugs, but it seems solid so far for me.

If you’re not part of the public beta program, you can apply to join here.
