Now that we've added a few faces to our corkboard, let me show you some tips for managing them. First thing I am going to do is go to Full Screen mode, mainly because it's just so pretty. Now, I can move faces around on the board itself and basically all I have to do is click-and-drag. Now you notice as I go over, I get that little plus sign and that is a Merge, and you want to be careful that you don't merge unless you are intending to. Most of the time you don't want to mix people on your corkboard unless there's a marriage or something and still even then you may not want to.
Now, you can also change the key photo. As I scrub through, you see different photos. Once I find one that I like, which with me is not going to be easy, but I'll go with this one. I just hit the Spacebar and that key photo will stay. The other thing that you will notice on the corkboard is that we have the close-up view of the faces. If I want to back off and see the entire photo, I hold down that Option key and now I can see the entire image, even as I am scrubbing.
So I am just holding down the Option key. When I let go of the Option key, then we go back to the close view. To go inside this collection, I double-click on it. Once again, I have a toggle. This time it's not the Option key. It's an actual switch where I can look at the full picture or just the face. I have a Zooming slider down here that allow me to zoom-in or back it off a bit. If I add more photos to my iPhoto Library that iPhoto thinks Morgan appears in, this message will change and I'll have the opportunity to confirm additional instances of Morgan and add them to her corkboard collection.
Once I'm done working here, I can go back to the all faces view. The last thing I want to show you is that you can change this label right here. All you have to do is click on it and you can type whatever you want. So just a few tips to help you manage your Faces corkboard.
