In iPhoto '11 Essential Training, Derrick Story offers an in-depth tour of the popular photo management software from Apple, demonstrating its various features for organizing, editing, and sharing images. The course covers techniques to categorize and combine images into custom collections using iPhoto's geotagging, face detection, and Smart Album features, and offers insight on how to perform key image corrections and enhancements. Also covered are tutorials on building customized slideshows and outputting collections to calendars, books, and greeting cards. Exercise files accompany the course.
The Find Faces command also works great for established libraries. When you already have a whole lot of people on your Corkboard and you want to see what iPhoto digs up. So all you have to do is while you're in the Faces interface here, go down to Find Faces and it will show you what is discovered in your library. Here's me. So I can just type that in right there, hit Return, and as I showed before, Continue to Faces, and it's found no other instances of me.
So that other face that we all know was me iPhoto didn't identify. That's not a problem at all. So we go back to Find Faces, and I think it was the sunglasses. It's there. So all I have to do then is just type my name again. Now, it auto fills because I have typed it once, and I go onto Faces and it's been added to my corkboard. Beautiful! Now, one other thing that I want to show you while we're on the subject of Find Faces, if you decide that there is a face that you want iPhoto just to ignore going forward, you notice that when I mouse over the image, you get that little X up here and you click on that and it will dim.
Now, it doesn't take the photo out of the Library or do anything like that, but it does take it out of the face recognition technology search. So, for instance here I know that we are not going to have any more instances of this child and it won't be part of my Faces corkboard. So I just tell iPhoto to ignore this face by clicking on the X. Continue to Faces. Now, when we go back to Find Faces, you notice that it's grayed out because there are no more faces to find.
So, just a little follow-up on using Find Faces. I think in next movie I want to get into some corkboard management.
