Description Allan Day 2015-01-29 10:38:41 UTC
Photos currently shows a placeholder when there are no photos present.
However, this is a bit flat and uninteresting for the first time you run the app.

One of the things we would like to do is have interesting and engaging welcome
screens for all the content applications. Designs can be found here:

And there is an asset here:

This includes images from jimmac that are licensed under CC BY-SA, so attribution needs to be given.

One quick note. Initial states [1] are different from empty states [2]. The former is only shown when no content has ever been added. If the appplication subsequently becomes empty after content was added, then the later should be used.

However, it would have been nice if the designs said something about how to handle the different views. For example a common scenario is that the user has pictures but no albums or favorites.

That is for documents, not for photos.
