How to add names to photos of people in Photos on Mac
Open the app “Photo” on macOS and navigate to the photo where you want to tag the person. Then follow these steps.
1. Double click on the image to open it in “Photo”…
2. Press the button “Information” (small letter “I” in a circle) on the toolbar.
3. Click the icon “+“ in section “Add faces”…
4. When a circle appears on the photo, move it to the person’s face, expand it to the desired boundaries by dragging the circle and add the desired name in the text field.
There is also another option.
1. Click View → Show people names on the menu bar.
2. Double click on the photo to open it.
3. Click on the unsigned text field below the person’s face circle and add the desired name there.
Adding a name tag to your face is a great way to create collections of the people you care about. Thanks to this simple tool, it will also be possible to identify colleagues or acquaintances so as not to forget them.
Do you use this opportunity in the Photos app on Mac or iOS? How do you refer to the people present in the photographs?
