Launch Launch Motif App

Launch Motif App

I have downloaded the Motif app. How do I launch the app and start creating a photo project?

Since Motif is a native extension to Photos on macOS, it runs directly inside Photos.

Once you download Motif from the Mac App Store, Motif will be automatically plugged into the Photos app, allowing you to create memories using your Albums, Smart Albums, Memories, and other image collections. You do not need to export and import your existing photos into another photo application outside of the Photos app on macOS. 

To access and launch Motif, please follow these steps: 

  1. Select any album under My Albums
  2. Right click the album you have selected.
  3. Select Create, and in the drop-down menu, select Motif.
  4. Alternatively, you can also go to the top navigation bar, click File, select Create, and then select Motif

From here, Motif will open inside the Photos app and allow you to choose and launch the type of photo project you want to work on, such as a photo book, a calendar, or a set of cards.
