Memory is a complex thing. Some of us are great at connecting names to faces, while others (and here I raise my hand) always have a problem with remembering names, especially when you meet someone in context. For example, imagine embarrassment when someone you know from work suddenly appears at a friendly party and spend another hour trying to remember her name. name with face. While there are some mobile apps that say they can help, I didn't find any decent devices for my Android phone. (The only app that really worked for me, Evernote Hello, was killed in 2015.) However, there is one app that can help you memorize the memory incorrectly: Google Photos. different categories ̵
What makes the People page even more useful is that each of the photos on the page can be named. So if you see someone at a party and just don't remember your name, you can find a corner, grab a phone, go to the Photo People page, and scroll down until their photo appears – and their name.
But it won't work unless you first tag individuals in your collection. It's easy, though it can be time consuming, depending on how many people appear in your images.
- On the Google Photos main page, click the search box at the top of the page. with people in them you should see a horizontal bar with small photos. Click the arrow to the right of the bar
- This will take you to the People page. Square photo rows showing different individuals are displayed. This is because Google Photos collects information that is the same person's photo and selects one representative photo
- Select the person you want to identify. All images decided by Photos to include this person will be displayed. On this page, find the link titled "Add Name" (at the top-left of the top-of-the-line mobile app).
- Select a link and start typing. A list of contacts is displayed, allowing you to select a person's name if it is already in the list. If not, you can only enter a name.
- Now that you return to the People page, the person's face will be marked with their name. In this case, you can remove the photo from the user's page.
- On the individual page, hover over the photo you want to remove. A check box appears in the upper left corner of the photo.
- After selecting photos, click the three dots in the top right corner
- Select "Delete Photo".
You can also remove anyone who is not interested in seeing All – say, an ex that brings bad memories – completely from People
- In the web and mobile versions, click the three dots in the top right corner of the People . & hide faces "(web) or" hide and show people "(mobile)
- Select any person you want to cancel on the People page. An eye icon will appear on the photo with a line across it and when you return to the People page, that person will not be there.
- Would you like to return them? Return to this page and select a person. The icon disappears and the person returns to your People page.
Unfortunately, Google Photos is missing some features that would be useful. For example, you cannot add no photos to People – you must hope to recognize AI photos and add all your photos of that person. (Something that can be very frustrating.) Watch out for another link that sometimes appears on an individual's page labeled "the same or the other". In that case, you can say that the photo (yes or no) is really a photo of that particular person
time (especially if you need to find their names). And since it's Google, it's a safe bet to say that it will eventually change the functionality of the app (for better or worse) or fit in. I know a few people who have spent hours organizing and displaying their photos in the popular Picasa app to get a Google owner out of them in 2016.
