Deleting People from Faces

If you've assigned names to people who appear only once or twice in your entire photo library, it may not be worth having them cluttering your Faces corkboard. It's easy to remove a person from Faces.

To delete a face:

  • From the Faces corkboard, drag a person's snapshot to the Trash in the source pane (Figure 4.18), or select a snapshot and press cmd-del.jpg.

    iPhoto prompts to make sure you really want to delete the person from Faces (Figure 4.19).

  • When browsing through a person's identified photos, select all the photos and press delete.jpg. Alternatively, control.jpg-click the selection and choose This Is Not "Name" from the contextual menu.
