Lightroom CC: Assign People tags to pictures that were missed

  • Updated 1 month ago
Once the indexing has been completed and Lightroom CC has found all the potential faces, it would be nice to have the ability to add People Tags to pictures that were "missed" where no faces were recognized.  The idea of People Tags is to be able to search for people and generate all potential results.  Right now it's messy because you have to resort to keyword tags to identify people that were missed with facial recognition and makes searching and cataloging a tedious task.

Yes - I'm having the same issue. After moving from classic version to cloud version, lack of the ability to tag unrecognized faces is a big negative. Adobe please add this soon!

I have some photos where facial recognition has not picked up a person - how do I add this 'person' tag?  It cannot be done unless Lightroom has picked up a face and if it is crooked, etc, it won't be done.

Same thing here. I got a collection on my main computer - where I use Lightroom CC Classic. I scanned a whole bunch of photos and wanted to use Lightroom CC on my tablet or mobile to bring along to family to aid in ID'ing people in the photos. But I've been unable to tag faces that haven't been recognised.

By the way - is this still correct? https://www.lightroomqueen.com/community/threads/faces-in-classic-vs-people-in-mobile.36149/

That People don't sync between Classic and Cloud?

Yep, that's still correct. Adobe "froze" the Lightroom Classic sync features in Nov 2017 when they announced their new focus on LR CC as the cloud-app and Classic as desktop-focused.

Are they not trying to make them talk together properly? To me it seems like they are so very close to being very useful companions. Having Classic on my main machine while syncing photos to Cloud where I can make adjustments and meta data updates via mobile/tablet/laptop while in the field.

Essentially, no. Classic's retained its earlier experiments with sync, and they're continuing to support that existing Classic/mobile workflow, but they're not expanding it. CC is rapidly growing into a far better tool to use as a cloud client.

I'm not thrilled about the choice, but I understand why they've made that choice. Folder-based vs. cloud sync are very different concepts, and when you try to cross over, both the cloud and the local file system want to be "in control" of the photos. It's a messy situation. Whereas when you have a cloud client like CC, the cloud is the central repository.

The trouble is that I don't feel I can use the Cloud client - still lacking features. And having all my photos stored in Cloud - eating up the GBs quickly with RAW files.

Hope things will improve in either end. Either Classic speaks better with Cloud, or the Cloud client can offer the same functionality as Classic.

Right now it seems as though whatever workflow path I choose I must sacrifice some useful features.

Yep, it's a tricky crossover time. CC is adding features at a very good pace, but Classic has many year's head start. It'll be worth searching (here) for the features you're missing and adding your vote, as that does help to determine priorities.

Tagging people manually when they're missed by the algorithm would be very helpful. Otherwise the "people search function" is kind of incomplete.

I really miss the ability to manually add people to photos. And related to this I also miss the ability to tag people in videos. I really wish you would add this feature to Lightroom (Cloudbased).

Until then I allways have to import images to classic, then tag all people, before exporting the classic catalog before migrating the catalog into lightroom (cloudbased).
