Initiating face scanning for Apple Photos on Mac Mojave is an easy process. First, you will need to open the Photos app from your Mac’s Dock. Once you have opened the Photos app, go to the “Photos” menu at the top of the screen and select “Preferences”. In the Preferences window select the “Face Recognition” menu on the left hand side. When the Face Recognition menu is selected you should see an option to “Scan for Faces.” Selecting this option will initiate the scanning process. The scanning process will take some time and it will search through all of the Photos you’ve imported into Photos.
Once the scan is complete, you will be able to select faces and assign a Name or Group to them. This will allow you to easily find pictures of a specific person, or group of people, in the future. You can also choose how to sort the faces, such as Alphabetically or By Faces.
Once the scanning and sorting is complete, the Photos app can begin to automatically recognize when a face appears in a picture and will begin to show those photos when you search for them. With this feature, searching for photos of family, friends, or even yourself is made much easier.
That’s all it takes to initiate Face Scanning for Apple Photos on Mac Mojave. Have fun finding and enjoying all of your favorite photos!
