One of the neatest features in macOS High Sierra is hidden within the Photos app and allows users to seamlessly integrate with third-party photo services for Projects.
Since macOS High Sierra became available yesterday, several third-party apps have been upgraded to integrate with Projects in Photos, head below as we round them up.

WhiteWall lets you turn photos into beautiful wall art. You can design your own arrangements and prints, choosing from your favorite pictures in Photos. The app is incredibly customizable, allowing you to choose sizes, frame colors and styles, and much more:
Using the power of Apple Photos, WhiteWall enables you to visualize your images hanging on your wall. Design your own arrangement of photo prints from a selection of your favorite pictures. First, decide if you want prints, mounted prints or framed prints.
Then swap out images, reposition them on the virtual wall, change their sizes, and crop them as you see fit. Once you’ve selected the images and arrangement you want, you can make changes to the mounting or framing options you’ve selected. With the traditional frames, you can even choose and size the matting to suit your photo. After that, all it takes is a few clicks and your memories are off to WhiteWall for award-winning production.
WhiteWall is available now on the Mac App Store.
