From: Photoshop Elements 11 Essentials: 01 Importing and Organizing Photos

Video: Viewing people

Once you've identified the people using the methods that I showed you in the last two movies, you can take advantage of that to see all the photos you have of a particular person in People view. To get to People view, I'll click the People button at the top of the screen. Now I happen to still be in the folder that I was in from the last movie, and so I'm just looking at people whose pictures happen to be in that folder. If I want to see all the people who I've identified in this catalog, I can click the All People button at the top of People view. Here, I have a stack of photos for each person that's been identified in this Catalog.

Viewing people

Once you've identified the people using the methods that I showed you in the last two movies, you can take advantage of that to see all the photos you have of a particular person in People view. To get to People view, I'll click the People button at the top of the screen. Now I happen to still be in the folder that I was in from the last movie, and so I'm just looking at people whose pictures happen to be in that folder. If I want to see all the people who I've identified in this catalog, I can click the All People button at the top of People view. Here, I have a stack of photos for each person that's been identified in this Catalog.

To see all the photos in a stack without pressing down on my mouse, I'll just move the mouse back and forth across a stack like this, and I can see all the photos in a stack. If I want to drill down to see all the photos in a stack next to one another, I'll double-click the stack. This is a Grid view similar to Media view. Down here, I have a Zoom slider that I could use to Zoom Out or Zoom In; or I could double-click any photo here to go into Single Image view like this, and double-click on the photo again to go back to the Grid or click the Grid button up here.

Notice that at the top of the screen, there's a switch that's set to Photos. If I click on that switch and drag it to the left, the Organizer Zooms In to show me just the faces in these photos, rather than the entire photos. And if I want to see the entire photos again, I'll click and drag that switch back to Photos; and if I want to go back to see all of the stacks, I'll click the Back button at the top of People view. I can access more options by right-clicking on a stack. From this menu, I can rename the stack, so I'll choose Rename, and I'll type Sue instead of Susan and click okay. And that changes the name on each of these photos and in the Keyword Tag panel.

And I can also change the photo that's on the top of the stack. So I know that Mom won't be happy with this photo., I'll move my cursor over this stack and drag back and forth until I see a photo I like better. I'll go with that one, and then I'll right-click and I'll chose Assign As Profile Picture, and that picture will now be on the top of the stack. Now let's see what happens if I move over this stack, right-click, and choose Remove This Person. That brings up this kind of scary warning that this is going to remove selected people from your catalog. Well, this doesn't mean that all of this person's photos will be deleted from my Catalog, it just means that the person will no longer have a stack here in People View, nor a Keyword Tag in the Tags panel.

So I'll click Yes and that removes your stack. But I could always bring her back into People view by finding her photos and identifying them, using either of the methods in the last two movies. Let's go back to Media view for a moment. I'll go up to the top of the Organizer and I'll click Media, because I want to show you that people assignments are recognized in Media view, too, as well as in People view. So, if I double-click this first photo and open it in single image view, you can see that both of the people in the photo are labeled and I can see the labels in Media view.

There's Mom and there's Dad. If I right-click either of the names here in Media view, that takes me back to People view, Zoomed in to the faces in all three of the photos in the Dad stack. And I'll click the Back button to go back see all the stacks in People view. So that's how to view and manage photos here in People view. If you're wondering why this is so great, just imagine that you'd been taking pictures of your daughter over the years, and those photos are all located in different folders and perhaps on different drives.

Making use of the People Recognition System and People view is a great way to get to see all of those photos in one place without having to move them from the actual folders in which they're located or go to the trouble of manually keywording them. They'll all be here in stacks in People view for you to enjoy.
