    In regards to photoanalysisd: I think this is the process that indexes photos by categories by analyzing objects and scapes on your photos. Apple mention this new feature when they first announced Photos for Sierra. I was actually looking forward to this feature as I was adding my own meta data to photos, like mountain, trees, lake, water, etc. It isn’t clear in Photos that this feature is even available. I found it by doing a search in Photos and noticed the search results were displayed under different headings. One of the headings is “Categories” and it appears to be the result of analysis done on the photos.
