Adding Your Pets As People In Mac Photos

Photos will easily mark pictures as containing people's faces, as long as they are human. But you can also manually add your pets or anything you like to the People feature manually.

    So so good.
    Photos is underused by many. Excellent reminder of its possibilities.
    Also, another reminder that iPhone and iPad are not Macs and the power of the laptop!
    And finally, the fact that work that is done on Mac can be accessed by iPhone and iPad thanks to the Apple ecosystem.

    Thanks for this, Gary.
    Is there a way to merge IDs in Faces? Over the years I have labeled the same person differently (eg Olivia, Livvy, Liv). I'd like to merge all the photos into one ID.

    Ros: Yes. Go to the main People screen in Photos, select two people. Control+click on one of those. Select Merge.

    I love using what you have shared about Photos! I’m now off of google photos. I do have a question: on my Mac I put all of my photos (around 15,000+) into the photo app. Can I just select them all in the Photos app and copy into pictures? Guess I don’t know the difference between Pictures folder in my favorites and the Photo app??? Sorry if this is a stupid question!

    Nancy: The Pictures folder is a folder in the Finder where you can store things. In addition, it is the default location for the Photos library. I don't know what you are trying to do by moving all of your pictures OUT of the Photos app and into the Picture folder. You would end up with 15,000 FILES, each a photo, in the Finder. Just leave your photos in the Photos library and access them in the Photos app.

    Thank for your answer, Gary! I was trying to move all of my photos into a picture folder so I could use an app that finds duplicate photos. When my photos are is the photos.app is there an easy way to delete duplicates. Sorry for another bother!

    Nancy: In macOS Ventura there will be a new feature that does that. Wait until then. For now, I would just look at your photos and try to figure out what is going on. Make sure these are really duplicates (not just viewing the same photo in two places).

    Gary, thank you for take my your precious time to help me. I will definitely be signing up for your macOS Ventura course!
