Also, when you click on a person, the images that are associated with them have no way to determine which face it is using as a reference. So I have no way to make sure the right faces are identified for each person.

@David Francis, 

How much bigger do you think is prudent? Double? 1.5? It would be good to know if they are a little too small or a lot too small.

On my 1440p monitor on Windows 10 the size seems to be perfect, I wouldn't want to change it but I understand why some people might, the same goes for my 13" MacBook Pro Retina screen.

Maybe offer a slider similar to the grid views (it is called "grid size") with a bit of flexibility over the size? Options with regards to scaling are always good (I was already happy to see scaling options under preferences / UI settings).

In the People Grid, or in the Keywords panel in Detail view?

For example, do the thumbnails need enlarging or do you simply need a better way of figuring out which person in the photo matches up to which face?  For example, what if you floated over a face in the photo and they were highlighted (a bit like Facebook) or you floated over a person name and they were highlighted in the photo.

Is that the problem we're trying to solve by making the face icons bigger?

Victoria, great addition. I just ran into this while doing some tagging work within albums. While I think they are fine in the main Library > People view, they are definitely small and sometimes very hard to identify who is who in the album sidepanel view. 

I would say the images here should be 2-3x bigger. Perhaps it would work best if there would be a hover image pop-up with that size when you hover over the smaller images since I don't think large images would look nice in this panel.
