There must be a better/faster way to put names with the faces.  When the faces page comes up, I know to click on the face I want to name.   Then it says “add a name” which I do.  Then when I try to go back to the faces page to add more names to other faces, it takes me WAY back to the top of the faces page and I have to scroll through all the panels until I come to the next unnamed photo.

That takes way way way too long.  Isn’t there a faster way??

Hey Sue,

Sorry, I don’t know of any other way besides what you’re doing. You must be naming a lot of people.

If you want, you could give feedback for a feature request, but I wouldn’t hold my breath.

Awwww……Chris……I thought you would be my guardian angel and have the perfect answer for me as you usually do.  I really like having names with faces so I can search through years of photos by just entering a name.  BTW…I have over 196,000 photos up in that cloud.  Surprised

196,000!! You have me beat.

I have thought of one other way to get to face albums – I don’t think it is what you’re looking for, but I’ll mention it anyway …

Whenever you have a photo open (on the computer version), and it has faces in it – you can click the i for Info to open the information panel. You will see any albums that photo is in, including face albums. If one of those face albums is unnamed, you can click it to go to the album and then name it.
