Adobe Photoshop/Face recognition / tags Elements 11


Hello Kevin.
2nd question, will try not to make a habit of this.... still learning.

Thought I was being clever, in my older version of Elements 9 , saved tags to photos.

installed 11 (9 is gone) playing with facial recognition... all new..My old tags appear :) as I add people, I am not seeing them...
So.. think I need to wipe the slate clean and start again.
How do you remove all the tags off all my photos?

Thanks again


Hey Roger,

No worries. You shouldn't have to wipe the tags out to do Facial recognition, it should just add it to the tags already in place. Here is a link to explain where to find your old and new tags:
