Using Smart Albums In Mac Photos

Smart Albums are a handy tool in Mac Photos that can be used to view photos in your library that match certain criteria. Unlike regular albums, you don't add photos to the album manually and they automatically update as you add new photos.

    Very powerful tool. Can you do it based on location? And I’m guessing this only works on Mac and not iPhone or iPad?

    Karl: Try “Text” “is” and the name of a location. This is only for the Mac Photos app.

    Nice rundown of the powerful features, thank you. You mentioned adding a folder (around 6:43 mins into the video). Could you expound a bit on what a folder is and how it can be used?

    Eric: It is just an organizational tool. Instead of having all of your albums and smart albums in one long list in the sidebar, folders lets you group them. Try it and see.

    Is there a way to use pattern recognition and have a smart album find people in the pictures in which they appear?

    Gene: Yes. Look at the list of criteria. Person is one of them.

    I can only get one name in the list when I select the person option for a smart album. How do I add additional people?

    Louis: Just add another line with another Person.
