Use 'not a face' name to ease iPhoto '09 face tagging
Authored by: joerick on Apr 28, '09 10:13:05AM

I'm not sure naming the strangers is a good idea. iPhoto might start tagging people as 'stranger' rather than a face it does know, given that stranger covers a wide range of faces.

Use 'not a face' name to ease iPhoto '09 face tagging

I'm not sure either, but so far, it doesn't seem like it has been a big problem.

It would probably matter more if the face detection algorithms were... you know... "accurate". But that's not really the case with iPhoto so far.

On the other hand, if I can at least quarantine the faces that I know are not a match for any of the people I actually do know, then when I'm trying to find matches for the people I know, it at least goes a little more quickly.
