Picasa has recently developed a tool allowing you to identify who the people are in your photos. They’re called Picasa Name Tags. By name tagging your feature you can quickly sort all of them up according to “face” (or see an album where a friend, say Mary, is in the photos). The more you use this feature, the easier it will be for you to just keep on name tagging. This is because the system saves your tags and offers suggestion name tags as newer pictures are uploaded.
Before you can use this feature, Google says it has to process you albums first. So head on to your Picasa Page like so:
Then click the button you see below:
Notice that you’d be brought to your Picasa homepage, see the right side to contain this box below:
And just like a digital camera, it will search for all the “faces” in your Picasa albums. The more photos you have in the library, the longer this process takes to do.
I have about 41 faces in mine, so the process stopped with this graphic to tell me it’s done.
We’ll make this part one of this tutorial…. stay tuned for part two.
