For some reason that is not clear to me, the Photos app icon on the dock of my Yosemite OS now displays a badge (the number 1 in a red circle top right corner)

First of all, I have no idea what that badge is suppose to represent. Second, when I launch the app I have not idea what the thing is that I'm suppose to look at, acknowledge or in some way "touch" so that the badge goes away.

If you haven't already, turn on the sidebar - Option-Command-S - then look towards the top and under Shared, click Activity. Likely there is some activity on a shared album or Photo Stream. It may also be someone inviting you to join a shared album or Photo Stream. (I'm not sure how that would show up in Photos, as I haven't had any invitations since Photos was released.)

Either way I'm guessing once you take a look at that area, the badge will disappear.

  • I have the same question, and don't see "shared" in the sidebar. Any other suggestions? And I don't have any shared folders using photos... – Jake Lorfing Apr 24 '18 at 2:26

Supposing you're talking about iOS, the badge may mean somebody commented or liked one of your photos on a shared folder.

  • Sorry if I'm missing the exact name for the shared folder or photo stream but I have Spanish as my language on my iPhone. – Jaime Santa Cruz Apr 28 '15 at 1:48
  • No I'm referring specifically to the photos app that replaces iPhoto on Yosemite – Ralph Shillington Apr 28 '15 at 1:49
  • Ok, please clarify on your question, it will be easier to answer. – Jaime Santa Cruz Apr 28 '15 at 1:52
  • I've added Yosemite to the text of my question, although I want to point out that the original post was tagged as a yosemite question. – Ralph Shillington Apr 29 '15 at 14:49

    Yes it was a "Like" added to a shared photo by one of my family members – Ralph Shillington Apr 29 '15 at 15:10
