Library Settings

Hide Private

Photos/videos marked as private do NOT appear in Photos, Videos, Favorites, Labels, Places and shared albums in case this option is selected.

Quality Filter

When selected, non-photographic photos/videos like screenshots and low-quality photos need to be reviewed before they appear in Photos or Videos.

JPEGs are created for RAW files during indexing in case they do not yet exist. JPEGs will be stored in the same folder next to the original.
