How to Use Apple Photos

I’ve always tried to use my photo stream like a GTD style inbox for my photos.

I fully recognize that this isn’t the way it is designed, but I have a really hard time pushing that out of my head. In my perfect world the photo stream wouldn’t show images that have been “moved” to a photo album for example.

I’m not saying that Apple Photos is wrong at all…

What I’m asking is… How many people have the same mental block? What do you think the use case was for leaving everything in the photo stream? Is there a way to create a photo album for every picture that isn’t in a photo album? Or maybe I could create a photo “inbox” to process with Siri Shortcuts?

I ask this because when software from Apple doesn’t seem to work for me, someone usually has one piece of information that when I hear it makes the whole workflow make sense.
