Can you add specific photos to FEATURED PHOTOS on iPhone?

If you are an iPhone user, you might have stumbled upon the Featured Photos section in the For You tab. But have you ever wondered how to add specific photos to this section? In this article, we'll explore whether it's possible to manually add photos to Featured Photos on an iPhone.

Firstly, let's take a look at what Featured Photos are. Essentially, they are a selection of your best or most memorable photos curated by Apple's machine learning. These photos can appear in the Photos app's Widgets, your iPhone's lock screen, and the Photos widget in your Today View.

Now, to address the original question: Can you manually add photos to Featured Photos on an iPhone? The answer is no - at least not directly. Apple does not provide users with the option to choose which photos appear in Featured Photos.

As shown in the video transcript above, tapping the "Add to" button will allow you to add a photo to an album of your choice, but there is no option to add photos to the Featured Photos section.

It's worth noting that if you're seeing a particular photo in your Featured Photos section, it's likely because the AI algorithm in Photos has identified it as a high-quality or significant image.

However, there is a way to influence which photos may appear in Featured Photos. By favoriting or hiding specific photos, you can teach the Photos app which photos are important to you, and which ones are not. This may or may not impact which photos end up in the Featured Photos section, but it's worth trying nonetheless.

To favorite a photo, simply tap the heart icon while viewing the image. To hide a photo, select it and tap the share icon, then choose "Hide." Keep in mind that hiding a photo will remove it from all of your Memories, shared albums, and searches, so only do this for photos that you don't want to see again.

In summary, while you cannot directly add specific photos to Featured Photos on your iPhone, you can influence their appearance by favoriting or hiding photos that are significant to you. If you're looking to showcase specific photos on your home screen or widgets, consider creating a custom album and adding those photos to it.
