I'm afraid not. You can do places and whatnot from your i-device, but sadly no faces ability, although I have the feeling Apple will do it in the future. You can quite easily do it on iPhoto however. If you need any help in getting started at all in iPhoto, here's Apple's own support page: ...

Instead of clicking on the "Confirm Faces" button, simply select all the photos that match (using shift-click or any other method) and then drag them to the space above the grey bar that says "John may also be in the photos below". This has the affect of bulk confirming your selection as being John.

Try giving this a shot. Find your iPhoto library in your Pictures folder (unless you've moved it). Right click on it, and hit Show Package Contents. In the resulting folder, look for two files named face_blob.db and face.db. These are the two files that probably got corrupted in your case. Now, I'd browse your Time Machine backups and look for the last ...

It didn't happen to me with the latest version of iPhoto yet. But the only solution I found to fix this kind of issues in iPhoto '09 without trashing the entire iPhoto library was to remove only the Faces related files. With the '11 version the procedure would be: Close iPhoto Find your iPhoto library Right click on the photo library and chose "Show ...

You can use the built in features of OS X to help you narrow down your personal images from system and application images. AFAIK most Application images and system images are not going to be large. Or wider then either 512 pixels or 1024 pixels. So I assume all the files are in single folder and your personal ones are taken on a camera or Smart phone so ...

The same thing happened to me, thousands and thousands of face-tagged photos in iPhoto completely lost that info after the latest OSX update (May 11). Luckily I had Time Machine backups from before that - the files/folders that need recovering are: Faces.db (in Pictures/iPhoto Library/Database/apdb) Faces folder (in Pictures/iPhoto Library/Database) ...

Another way of confirming (or rejecting) faces in bulk is to drag (option) select over the faces you want to confirm (or reject). You can even mix in the same drag by pressing or releasing the option key to change between confirm or reject. Faces workflow has other tricks too (but nothing that makes its workflow smooth as one might expect in a pro app). ...

Facial recognition is a toted feature, but not a staple of the app's function. Import times would take significantly longer with CPU-heavy post processing occurring with high volume imports by professional photographers. The algorithm is meant to be efficient. Apple presents the option for a more intensive analysis of the library for those willing to commit ...

The detect missing faces is very useful for when Apple makes changes to the way that faces are detected. Perhaps they changed or tuned it to avoid marking hub caps on sporty cars as faces or added better filters for cats and dogs. People that imported pictures before these changes may need to ask Aperture to go back and check. This second part is pure ...
