Hi

I accidently started face detection and now I cannot stop it

I think I must had done some sort of keyboard shortcut when it started

I checked in catalog preferences- metadata- and the auto face detection was not ticked

I shutdown computer and restarted lightroom but it automatically is detecting faces

PEOPLE is showing on the bar under LIBRARY, DEVELOP

please help!

I have fixed it !

What I must have done was accidently hit the '0' on the keyboard, which activated the face on the lower bar

I just unclicked the face and now back to normal

Thanks all for helping

Just had this problem as well. Accidentally hit the "O" key and this face recognition started. NOT A HELPFUL FEATURE. Lightroom is a large program as it is and editing large photo batches is slow enough. The face recognition feature is not helpful and it slows down lightroom even more. Please Adobe, REMOVE THE FACE RECOGNITION FEATURE!

This feature is handy, to some, in some circumstances, I bet. It must be. But now, for me, it just wasted a good hour of my workday. Thanks Adobe (sarcastic[I'm sure I need to point that out])! Thanks for the community for showing keys in the dark till it hits the pay-dirt and I can on with my work day.

Simply go to the 'View' drop down menu and select 'grid' or whatever you chose to see in your library apart from 'people'. It is as simple at that.

With Photoshop and Lightroom if you set something by accident there is hell to pay.  It will remain wrong until some kind soul explains how to get back to normal.  A "reset interface" would be helpful.

This happened to me today and it's awful!  T didn't work, didn't see the little face.  Finally, View -> Show Toolbar worked and there was the blasted face.  I clicked it and i have my life back.   Terrible!

You’ve posted to a very old thread. It is highly unlikely that the issue described in this thread, though not impossible, is the same issue which you are currently experiencing. Rather than resurrect an old thread that is seemingly similar, you are better posting to a new thread with fresh, complete information including system information, a complete description of the problem and step-by-step instructions for reproduction. 

 

In the unlikely event the issue is the same, we will merge you back into the appropriate location. 

 

Thank you!
