Question: Re search discarded faces

(English is not my first language so the names for app functions may be wrong, but I think you'll get it)


So, in the Faces function - is there any way to find all the faces that you once told the app is not faces or irrelevant?


Not to search everything again - just to restore the photos I might have missed or photos with newly remembered names.

MacBook Pro with Retina display, macOS High Sierra (10.13.3)

Photos on High Sierra does not allow to reject faces anyway. If you previously deleted faces circles, they will have been added again to the Photos, because after the upgrade to High Sierra the faces will have been scanned again.

The people albums for the faces you previously rejected may be hidden, however.

  • If you come across an unnamed face you now want to name, type a name into the faces circle of the photo, where you are seeing the unnamed face.
  • Then swipe up to show the thumbnail of the face below the photo and click the thumbnail to open the album for the person.
  • Scroll down all the way until you see "Add to People album" and click this. The rejected person will have been added back to the People album.
