How to hide images in the Photos app on iPhone and iPad

How do I hide images from my Photos library? With the tap of a button.

Everyone has those images: The ones that you can't really bear to delete, but you also don't necessarily want to see them cluttering up your Photos library. Thankfully, hiding them from your library is an easy task.

What does hiding a photo do, exactly?

When you hide an image from your Photos library, it effectively disappears from your main photos view (which includes Moments, Collections, and Years). The image will still be available in Albums and searches, however.
