PEOPLE FINDER TIPS: How to identify and label family photos
Among the top questions we receive each day at ScanMyPhotos.com is how to label scanned pictures? These people finder tips can help discover who are those long-gone relatives and people in your photo albums.
There are so many unidentified people peering out of those decades-past snapshots. They look familiar but who are they?
Tips to identify people in photos:
- Start by flipping the photo over. Are there any notations on the back?
- Use “Google Photos.” On your iPhone or iPad, open the Google Photos app .
Tap Menu Settings Group similar faces.
If you haven’t already, turn on Face grouping.
Under “No face labeled as Me,” tap Choose.
Select your face. Tap OK. This will automatically turn on “Allow contacts to recognize your face.”
- Verge: “Google Photos has always been able to automatically recognize faces and sort them for you, which makes managing your library far easier than having to tag people manually. But the system misses faces sometimes, and there’s never been a way to correct it. Once this feature rolls out — and Google says it’s rolling out now — you’ll finally be able to add in many of the faces it’s been missing.”
- Google Image Recognition creates an ideal tool for searching people in pictures. The tool scours the web for images that appear similar to the one you have uploaded.
Android Central: How to manually tag faces. Tagging faces is a great way to easily index your photos, but before, you needed to let Google do all of the work, with the only manual option being confirming automatic tags. Now, you can do the tagging yourself in just a few simple steps.
