It’s Midnight, Do You know Where Your Faces Are?

Photoshop Elements, since version 4, has had a cool feature called Face Tagging. It may not be exactly what you’re thinking but it’s still a neat feature to know about. Let’s say you’ve just returned from vacation where you stopped by Grandma & Grandpa’s as well as a visit to Yellowstone and a stop to see friends in your old hometown. When you download all your photos, you have a mixture of people, places, things, events and critters. Now, before you forget, you want to tag (identify) all the people so you can find the photos in the future.

Face Tagging will sort through the photos and find all photos with faces (people). Now, you can tag (ID) all the faces while it’s still fresh in your mind. It’s not likely you’ll forget Grandma and Grandpa’s face but, without Face Tagging, you’ll never find all the photos of them in the future when you want to remember that special visit.
