How can I easily tell which photos are “loose”—not in any album? I’d like to see these “loose” photos, so I can file them.
Fortunately, you can create a smart album to handle this:
Choose File > New Smart Album.
Select from criteria Album, Is Not, Any.
Name and click OK.
Now you have an album that will only show what you want. As you add media to albums, the smart album updates results.
