    Great tips on searching! I have a related question: often I save images from the internet to Photos (mostly because there’s no option I’ve found for saving them to Files). They show up in strange places when I search by “Year” since they mostly have the current date in their metadata. Do you know of a way to save these images to Files that I’m missing, so my Photos are actually my photographs I’ve taken instead of a mix of them and images from the internet?

    Darrell: You should definitely save Internet photos (photos that you didn't take) as files in the Finder, not to your Photos library. Not sure what you mean by "mostly because there’s no option I’ve found for saving them to Files" as that's the default on a Mac. They should go to the Downloads folder.

    Sorry, Gary, I should got my wires crossed. The option issue I referred to is what I experience in iOS when saving photos. Thanks.
