So far, I hate the new Photos for OS X. Three beach balls on startup (looks like every reviewer used an SSD), and it immediately imported iPhoto without asking. Thanks.
I deleted both photo libraries and started over. Eventually I created a new, blank (or so I hoped) library so I could drag in my photo folders manually. And I've chosen not to import photos. I already have them in folders. I don't need them twice.
Then, suddenly, I start getting about eight random pictures. What the heck? Where are these coming from? I didn't want them in there. I hide them, since I apparently can't delete them.
Then I choose to import a folder. It doesn't, afaict, recurse directories. Wth?
Now I've got more randomly found photos. What the freakin' heck is Photos doing? Who's running this ride? These are not the photos I tried to import just a second ago.
Okay, so I start over again. I delete the photo library. I put the new photo library that I create on next startup into its own folder. Now there's nothing. Let's see if I can drag lots of year folders over. I can, but Photos doesn't tell me anything. No, "I see your folders, and I'm importing now." Nothing. It sits there. It's still sitting there. It either grabs random photos I don't want, or it sits. Nice.
So I try again. ONLY NOW does it act like it knows I tried to import something a few minutes ago.
I read the iMore review that makes things sound pretty rosy. Ain't true for the "start from scratch" use case. Not yet.
This stinks. STINKS. I guess Picasa, which does actually do what I tell it, still wins.
EDIT: Oh, wait. I guess I was supposed to see this horribly informative "alert" to know importing was underway:
I call it, "The Universally Recognized Circle o' Importing".
Then this happened.
