I just loaded Elements 11 onto my windows 11 laptop and imported about 15,000 photos. I was really looking forward to using the face recognition for tagging the photos but it does not seem to work. When I click "Mark Face" it always says people analysis is yet to be run and when I click yes to run it, nothing happens. Same thing when I click "Add People+", it just flashing something quickly on the screen and then nothing happens. I have "People Recognition" checked in the view screen and "Analyze Photos for people" checked in my preferences.
Please try one thing-
Click Edit >> Preferences >> click 'Restore Default Settings' in General pane.
Now relaunch EO and see if Face Recognition runs properly upon doing Add People.
Okay.. Please go to %appdata%\adobe\elements organizer\11.0\organizer and delete psa.prf file. If this helps, well and good else please go to the same location and delete psa.prf as well as status.dat files.
Face Recognition should run fine now.
