On Mac Os X 10.10.3, using Lightroom 5.2 (not the creative cloud version), when I try to import photographs from the Photos App, the Photos app doesn't show up under application. Is there a way to access the photos app and import from there or do I have to put my photos in a folder in documents? (I tried dragging pictures from the photos app but it didn't work)
The Photos app store the files in a package file called Photos Library in Pictures. Right click on Photos Library and choose 'Show Package Contents'. Look for the Masters folder, your original photos are in this. No settings have been applied though.
