Well, I want to show you a nifty trick that you'll really like. It's hiding photos. Hiding photos. This has all sorts of wonderful applications I'll show you. An application that I like to use it for right now. I'm going to go into my Germany trip right here. Overall I like the photos in here. I just don't like this one shot of me. I think I had just spent too many days with the Oktoberfest and I just look very tired in this shot.
So if I was to show this to friends and family, and I just didn't want them to see this photo. I don't want to throw it away. I want to keep it. I just don't want them to see it right now. All I have to do is highlight that photo, go up to Photos and then choose Hide Photo. Command+L is the keyboard shortcut if you want to use that. You do that and now that photo is hidden. Now I go up to View and I uncheck Hidden Photos and it's gone just like that.
Now I haven't thrown it away. It's still in my iPhoto Library. You just can't see it. It's hidden. Now if I want to see the photo, I can go back to View and I can turn on Hidden Photos and there it is. If I decide that I don't want to hide the photo anymore, that I just have to face reality with this particular shot, then I can go back to Photos and I can choose Unhide Photo. This can be particularly handy in on again/off again relationships.
You can just hide those photos and unhide them as necessary. But it's a great way to control the photos that show up without actually having to throw them away.
