Hiding Your Photos

iPhoto gives you the ability to hide certain photos. I know, all of your photos are amazing, so why would you want to hide any of them? Hiding is useful when you are thinking about deleting photos but aren’t quite sure if you want to do that. In the meantime, choosing to hide photos removes them from view in your iPhoto Library.

Hide a Photo

  1. Select the photo or photos you want to hide.
  2. From the menu bar select Photos, Hide Photo.
  3. The photos are removed from viewing, and at the top of iPhoto’s window you are notified of how many photos are hidden in the particular album, Event, Faces, or Places.

Temporarily View Hidden Photos

  1. Select View, Hidden Photos. This does not unhide the photos because they are still marked as hidden. This simply shows you all the photos you have hidden.
  2. Hidden photos in this view are marked with an orange X in their upper-right corners. If you select View, Hidden Photos again, the photos you have marked as hidden vanish from view again.

Unhide a Photo

  1. Select your hidden photos.
  2. Choose Photos, Unhide Photos.
