Ideas to Improve People

I have been using the People (face recognition) feature since it has been out, I like it, but and I have a few things I wish Adobe would consider.

1. Be able to see which person in the photo it is asking me to tag. I wish it would let me hover over a face to see who it is saying is who. (Yes, I'm suggesting you "borrow" that from Facebook). The app presents me with a face and ask if this person is in the photo. While this is a yes, it never really tells me who exactly in the picture it is referring to. I find this frustrating with siblings that look alike in the same photo or set of photos. For the purposes of algorithms, my sons look alike. When LRCC presents me with a photo of one kid in a photo with both kids, I never really know if it is tagging all the faces in all the pictures.

2. A real Trash or Forget folder. I don't want to just hide people. There are people I will never have a desire to tag, and I don't want to waste my time hiding them. The Forget Folder would be random people in the background and others that I just need to go away. I want a place for people I really don't want to tag. To me "hiding" has a different implication. I may hide people I know (and have already tagged) because I don't want to see them everyday, but I want the memory of them somewhere. Thinking of Exs or other complicated life stuff. 

3. Grouped people tags. This may seem counter to the people/ faces recognition, but I would love it. Going back to my item 2, there are people I don't care to tag as individuals, but would not mind grouping them. An example of this are my kids classmates. I don't want to tag each of them. But I can imagine in the future my kids wanting to reminisce about a grade and wanting to pull-up pictures of classmates. I would want to be able to tag all the classmates into one tag (Johnny's classmate), and anytime LRCC see a given face, it then gets the hint that the person is part of this non-specific group. I wouldn't mind a person being only assigned to one group. I also wouldn't even mind if I have to manually tag the same person over and over again. I just don't want to hide people that I have a semi-specific category for in my head.

Your first request is already there, but not quite the way that FB does it. However, in the Detail view with the Keyword panel open to the right, you'll see a list of suggested faces. If you hover the cursor over any of the suggested names, a frame will appear on the image over the corresponding face.

Thanks Jim! Yes, you are 100% correct. I did not notice that until you mentioned it.
