Adding Facebook IDs to Faces

If you use Facebook to share photos, you can can automatically convert Faces information into Facebook tags and share with the people identified in the photos. All you need are their Facebook IDs.

  1. In the Library inspector, select the Faces view.
  2. On Cathy’s picture, click the Info button.

    Here is where you would enter the email address associated with the recipient’s Facebook ID. You will also need to confirm that the default preference is still in place to share the Faces info. Aperture does not publish the email address on the web. The address is only used on Facebook to announce that the person has been tagged in a photo.

  3. Close the Info window.
  4. Choose Aperture > Preferences, and click the Export button.
  5. Make sure that “Include face info in exported photos” is selected. When this option is selected, the name of the subject is added to the exported image’s metadata as a keyword.
  6. Close preferences.
