Fixing a Mistaken Face
At some point, you're certain to make a mistake and assign an incorrect name to a face, or iPhoto may assign a name to a face incorrectly despite your training (I haven't seen this happen yet, but I assume anything is possible). There are various ways to fix face recognition mistakes.
Ways to fix a misrecognized face:
- When browsing through a person's identified photos (double-click a snapshot in the Faces corkboard), -click an incorrect photo and choose This Is Not "Name" from the contextual menu (Figure 4.11).
