The modest changes that would make macOS a good app

I've submitted all of these as feature requests to Apple. If you like them please submit too, because we got nothing else.
  1. For any photo show list of albums that hold it. The UI for Contact/Folder relationships would do.
  2. Include Folder name matches in search results.
  3. Port Photos.iOS feature that shows geo view of images for an album to Photos.mac
  4. Provide a list view of images with metadata
  5. When exporting images also export metadata (ideally in image header, otherwise XMP sidecar
There's a few more I need to add but I'll remember them as I work/curse

Not a modest change but great benefits for customers - extend PhotoKit so third parties can fill gaps better.
