If you want to add names to the people in your photos on your iPhone, you can do this by adding someone to the People album. And while you can do the same on Mac, there’s actually a faster way to identify and name people in your photos on macOS.
Here’s how to quickly identify and name people in Photos on Mac.
Identify and name people in the Photos app on Mac
Launch the macOS Photos app, navigate to the picture you want to add a person to, and follow these steps:
1) Double-click the image to open it.
2) Click the Info button (small letter “i”) in the top-right of the toolbar.
3) Click the plus sign in the Add Faces section.
4) When the circle appears on the photo, add a name in the text box.
1) Click View > Show Faces Names from the menu bar.
2) Double-click to open the photo.
3) Select the text box labeled Unnamed and add the person’s name.
Adding a name to a face in your photos is a great way to see collections of someone you love. It can also help identify coworkers or acquaintances so you never forget them.
