I have a photo of a friend and his wife in my albums. Click on the photo to put their name’s in Info.

Two pictures are shown. One of my friend and the other is of my wife, not his.

Is their a way to correct this?

Thank You

Richard,

I’m having trouble understanding what exactly you are seeing. Do I have this right? 

  • You click on one picture, and 2 show up?

It sounds like you must be referring to the People albums. But, there – the cover photo is only of one person, not two. 

If it is an album you created (not an automatic face album, or places) then it sounds like you just mistakenly added the photo of your wife, you can click the 3-dot menu and remove it from the album.

Can you give me some more details?

I click on a picture in one of my albums of a friend and his wife and I see a section that says INFO. In Info I see a

thumbnail picture of my friend and a picture of my wife, not his. There should be a picture of my friend and his wife.

Oh, got it – I understand now. You’re looking at the Info panel of a picture. The faces that show up there are where Google is using it’s Facial recognition artificial intelligence. The fact that you see your wife instead of your friend’s wife there simply means that the artificial intelligence didn’t get it right. You can try to correct it by clicking on your wife’s face there – that takes you to her Face album where Google collects all the photos that have been identified with her face in it. If you can find this photo (of your friend and his wife) you can select that photo while still in the group view by clicking the little checkmark circle, then click the 3-dot menu and then “Remove Results”

or

You may see a dialog box with suggested pictures and “Same or Different Person” – go thru that wizard and confirm or deny every photo they say is your wife.
