Question: Hiding photos

I think I know the answer to this but I will ask in hopes that I am wrong. I want to hide my photos that I put in albums so that I can still see them in the albums but not own my main photos page. Can that be done?

iMac, macOS Sierra (10.12.4)

Can that be done?

You can only do it photos 1 and 3. But no longer in Photos 3.0 on High Sierra.

Either the Photos User Guide is wrong, or Photos 3.0 has a bug.

According to the User Guide (View photos, Live Photos, slideshows, and more in Photos on Mac - Apple Support) the photos should only be hidden from the moments:

Hide photos: Select the photo or photos, choose Image > Hide [number] Photos, then click Hide Photos.

The selected photos disappear from your moments, but are not deleted

But now, they are only visible in smart albums.
