Add a new face in iPhoto '09 with corner-based resize
Authored by: scottbayes on Feb 10, '09 06:30:03PM

Thankyou thankyou thankyou!

The resize-from-center thing has been driving me nuts; I've probably added 2000-3000 face boxes so far.

Now if there were only a keyboard way to enter and exit Name mode. With my wide iPhoto window, the Name button is waaaay over to the left, and the Done button (to exit Name mode) is waaaay over to the right. Quite a pain to switch back and forth when occasionally needing to delete a photo while in the midst of a naming run (wish Delete worked here). Can't find a Shortcut for this in the iPhoto docs, nor a menu item (which would be easy).

Anyone have any ideas?

Also would be nice if Keyword shortcuts worked in the Name mode when the Keyword palette is displayed, but it seems I have to click the Keyword palette buttons, no keystrokes allowed.

iPhoto is VERY modal in many places.

I can't help you with a key for the Name button, but you can hit Escape instead of clicking the Done button.

Once in the faces interface I found that the Enter key -usually- opens the name field for editing and then Return usually closes it to allow cursor keys to proceed to next image.

I say usually because every so often same key press operates the 'Done' and the Return opens the image in my default helper app.

I have a new cut down keyboard and my 'enter' is function - return.

I'd love more keyboard based ways of doing this stuff or indeed copy pasting identities!

straight after posting this I found tab enters an un named face filed and then moves to next. Now that is the most likely - and I thought I'd tried that before without joy - but its working now.
