Photos for OS X and Hard Linked iPhoto Imports ➝

Jason Snell discusses Photos for OS X’s use of hard links when importing your iPhoto library. I Like that Apple thought ahead when developing Photos, giving users the option to go back to using iPhoto without also doubling the amount of disk space that your photos take up. It was clever on their part considering how many MacBook Airs with reletively small SSDs are still in use (many of which are only 64GB).
