Last September MyHeritage revolutionized the way you organize your digital photos. Instead of manually adding names to all the people on all your photos, like on facebook, the MyHeritage photo tagging automates this process - making it much quicker and more fun. The now released new tagging feature still finds all the faces in your photos, groups those that are the same person and let's you quickly tag them with a name from your family tree or a new name. And after you identified all family members at least once you can turn on automatic tagging, so people in new photos will mostly be tagged automatically, at least if they are from your family.
Besides: You still get automatic albums for all people you have tagged, which only include photos with them. And there is still our beautiful "face cloud" that visually shows you who's most present in your family.
Tagging at the speed of light
First thing you'll notice is the complete redesign of the interface, even though some of the biggest changes happened behind the scenes, where we made your tagging go even faster. Now, the new tagging page is not only incredibly fast, but also very reliable and working quickly even with huge photo collections.
A new sidebar
Our new tagging interface got a nice facelift. One of the additions is
the new sidebar on the right, that shows you the people you tagged recently and gives you some options for them: you can select an overview of all photos of this person, show his or her pictures in the family tree, view his or her profile or change their personal photo (the key photo that represents them).
By clicking "Show all" you get to a list of all people you have ever tagged – those who are in your family tree and those who aren't. If they are in the tree and so are you, we will also show you, how you are related. For Malia Ann in the attached screenshot for example, the sidebar shows Stanley Ann as Grandmother. The green bar at the bottom shows how many of the faces that were found in your photos have been tagged already.
Full (screen) little helpers
There is a couple of other improvements that you'll appreciate, if you tag a lot. You can now skip faces (with the "Delete selected faces" link at the bottom right). This feature is extremely helpful if you took photos for example in public places and our face recognition found people you don't know at all.
Finally you can also expand the new tagging interface to full screen (with the button at the top right), just as the full screen option you know from your family tree.
Let's get tagging!
