If Photos are not Visible after Exporting them from Photos for Mac

The export from Photos can write invisible JPGs to the disk, if the photos are exported with the option "Filename: Use title".

If the user first assigned a title to the photo, the deleted the title text, the photo will have an empty title and the exported photos will be named simply ".jpg" and treated as invisible system files. This bug can fill the disk with plenty of image files, that are not visible in the Finder, unless hidden files are made visible.
