What does "Add People" do?

Jan 27, 2013 1:50 PM

I coverted my Elements 10 Catalog to Elements 11 recently and have been trying to continue identifying faces in my images. Since there is no Tag setting for people I guess I am forced to use the "People" features built in but I cannot figure out just how it is supposed to work. My collection of images is over 15000. Many of the folders contain images with people in them. Some have been previously tagged with names and many do not. When I run that feature on the full collection it seems to show a working or busy circle icon and a bar graph but it never gets beyond zero. When I select a single folder it acts more like I would expect reviewing the images in the folder but it never finds any faces that are not tagged yet when I manually review the folder I can find them. What am I doing wrong? Is it possibly tied into the fact that I converted my catalog? If there is nothing wrong other than the way I am using it, can someone explain the best work flow for these tasks.

    Going back to your initial problem, try View>Show People in Tag Panel.
