    Hey Guys

    I'm a bit confused about how to do something in Photos. It's probably simple I am missing.

    Lets say I have 5 different folders. If one folder is entitled "Nephew" for example. So I might take a picture or 2 of my nephew everytime I am at my sisters place. Its pretty cool that if I take it on my iPhone it than appears on my Mac. My question than is how do I get it into my Nephew folder. I can see that I can create a new folder, but I want to put it into a re existing folder. I can't seem to drag anything from the "all photos" album to another album.

    Any help with this would be great!
    Thanks!

    Just to make sure we are on the same page.
    You place photos into Albums.
    You store multiple Albums in Folders.

    For instance I might have Albums called Mom, Dad, and Brother. I can place all those albums in a Folder called Family.

    So you want an Album called "Nephew" you can just highlight the photos in all photos and copy [cmd+C] and then of into the album and paste [cmd+V] ..

    If you show the sidebar, View -> Show Sidebar; you can go into Moments or All Photos and drag the photos to the Album in the sidebar.
