Move photos to archive

You can hide photos from your Photos view and move them to archive. This can help you organize your photos and hide any photo that you don’t want to see often.

Any photos that you archive:

  • Will still be in any albums that they were added to, search results, and folders on your device.
  • Won’t be used to create movies or animations.

If you have a document, receipt or photo that doesn’t look like it should be in your Photos library, you might get an assistant card to move it to archive. Learn more.
