For example, if you’ve painstakingly stored your pictures on your hard drive using subfolders named by date or event—say, a folder named 2016 that contains a folder named San Diego Comic-Con that contains a folder named Thor—those folders disappear in Photos and the images are all lumped together in the Last Import album.

Photos refers to these files as referenced, and they remain firmly rooted where they are on your hard drive. You control this behavior with Photos’ preferences: Choose Photos→Preferences→ General (see Figure 2-7). If you turn off “Copy items to the Photos library,” any future content you import won’t be copied into Photos’ library.
