If you are like me, you avoid using Photos or iTunes to store images or music.

Why? Because if you ever need to share or archive these files they are really hard to find. I find it much easier to store all project files outside these two applications.

However, what you may not know is that Apple changed the behavior of a Browser so that, while it still shows the contents of your Photos library, it also provides access to a wealth of royalty-free sound effects that you can use in your own projects.

To see what you’ve got, click the second icon in the top left corner of the Browser, select Sound Effects and listen away! You can freely use these files in any project without worrying about royalties or copyright.

      Go to the Final Cut menu in the top left corner.
