    Hey Gary, I'm not sure how the Sharing option in Photos is different from what was already available. Our family has been sharing photos albums for a while, and it's not apparent to me how this new feature is different. Thx.

    Gary -- Is there a way to merge duplicates in bulk? Photos found 3,000+ dups in my collection! It's taking me a long time to merge each pair/group. Thanks. Jason

    Jason: Yes there is, but I highly recommend against using it. Photos are too valuable. Go in and make sure before you delete. 3000 can be done 100 at a time (50 duplicates) here and there and eventually you'll be done.

    Hi Gary, the copy and paste option is only applicable under adjustment feature, crop and/or leveling are not enabled?

    Juan: Right. It only makes sense for adjustments. You typically wouldn't want to crop different images to the same thing.

    I was thinking on timelapse photo process.

    Juan: Oh, I see. But you'll need to take the photos into another app to do that anyway, so might as well do the cropping there.

    Is there anyway while viewing photos in your library to determine whether a particular photo is in an album. When I used Photoshop in the past it would show under the photo (like titles) if the photo was in an album. I guess when in doubt, you can always move to the album of choice - it won't duplicate the photo in the album. Thanks for showing the new features.

    Norm: Yes, there's no way to see a list of albums a photo is already in. But placing there again won't duplicate it or anything like that, so no harm.

    I have Ventura 13.0.1. In Photos 8.0, there is no Duplicates album as shown in your video. What am I missing?
