Technical Information: Mac OS High Sierra 10.13, Photoshop Elements 2020
I have upgraded to Photoshop Elements Organizer 2020. The proces of analyzing facing faces started and is continuing now for a long a time. However the count says it is now at photo 15629 of 78950 pictures. The speed is about 100 photo's per hour and so it wil take ages to be finished. Also my laptop is making overhours .... What can I do to speed up the process (I like the recognized faces), or how can I stop the proces?
Your reported speed of 100 images per hour seems very slow (and it will likely get slower as you proceed). Where are your photos stored - on an internal or external drive?
Have you tried naming any of the stacks in the UnNamed People room? Until you start naming people and helping the artificial intelligence along, the program may think that faces of the same person shown in a different light/profile/with or without glasses/hat are different people and will put them into separate stacks. As you name people, the program will learn that it is the same person and will have less work to do. (At least, that's my theory.) I don't know whether this will help but it may.
