NOTE When you import files from a folder on your hard drive (or from a CD or DVD), Photos ignores whatever directory structure that folder used. 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.

But you can change this behavior so that Photos doesn’t copy the original files, it merely remembers where they are—on your internal or external hard drive, a CD or DVD, a flash drive, a networked hard drive, and so on. 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.
