Images in the camera roll have many changes; many Apple users may be unfamiliar with the people album, where a user’s contacts are automatically identified through facial recognition. Though this is an effective feature, it is not 100 % accurate all the time. With the new iOS 15 updates, the adjustments are made, and the issue is not much of a concern anymore because Apple has made the necessary changes.
What is People Album in Apple Photos?
In an apple device, the photos app is where all images and videos are stored, and the people album is where the device recognizes a person’s face in an image and stores their faces as a thumbnail. When trying to look for images with specific people in them, this feature can help in saving time. But there have been cases where the device mistakenly misinterprets a person’s image and saves it as someone else. So, how can you correct errors in the Photos people album? The process is explained here.
Steps to Correct Errors in the Photos People Album?
The recent update has made some adjustments, but those with previous updates can also try the following:
Step 1: On your Apple device, open the photos app.
Step 2: Select the albums tab.
Step 3: on the top right corner, you will see the ellipsis icon “…” click on it.
Step 4: now, from the options displayed, select “manage tagged photos.”
Step 5: you will now be shown a list of images to select from; several images of one person will be shown. If you think some images do not match up with the identified person, start unselecting.
Step 6: you can add unadded images of the tagged person by selecting the option “tag more photos” at the very bottom of the screen.
Step 7: don’t forget to tap on “done”; without doing so, the changes won’t be made.
