    Maybe Photos can't do this (is there an app that can?), but I need to create an album or smart album that will, for example, show all photos from June 9th. Not in one year, but all photos dated June 9th, across all years that are in the photo library.

    I've tried creating various searches, but all the date fields have the year present.

    Is there a way to do this?

    Did you try the top right search field "June 9" then select all into an album?

    Maybe Power Photos?

    I use it for other things but its search facility might do what you want.

    It would be a neat feature to look at birthday photos over the years.

    Make a smart album with a date range of June 1 to 30 (or just June 9) for each year, then combine them. Shouldn't take too long.
