Identify misnamed photos in iPhoto '09 face matching
Authored by: babbage on May 04, '09 09:18:16AM
you're still performing unnecessary steps by first rejecting all photos. [...] instead, skip that step. just control-click on the pics that aren't a match and rename them. by doing so, they're automatically rejected. no need to manually reject them, first. [...]then after you've eliminated all of the rejects, you can confirm the remaining matches in one fell swoop.

This isn't how iPhoto seems to behave for me. If I don't explicitly reject faces, they tend to get suggested again.

The fastest workflow I've been able to think of is to explicitly reject them all first (which only takes a few seconds, just option-click and drag a rectangle over all the photos iPhoto suggests), then add back the matches and correct the mismatches.

For me, if I omit rejecting the mismatches, then most or all of them will still be there after I click the [Done] button. While it does seem like they'll eventually go away as iPhoto scans for a fresh batch of matched photos, the way I do it feels like it's faster & more responsive -- I get the result I expected right away, rather than possibly-maybe getting that result a few minutes later as new faces start to appear.
