"Faces software is unusable"0.5 starson by krug0043
Pros: New slideshow options
Cons: Faces software is unusable because it is unreliable.
Summary: recently bought a new iMac. I made the switch from a PC primarily because of the facial recognition software of iPhoto 09. Being able to organize my photos by who is in them would be a huge step forward. I was very excited to start tagging my 14,000 pictures with who is in them. I spent most of a weekend using the software to tag about 2,500 of my photos, only to find that a bug with the software randomly assigns photos that I have already assigned to one person to another person. One of my people even got completely deleted. Very frustrating! Until this bug can be fixed, Faces is unusable because you can not trust it. I am not the only one having this problem. There is a forum on apple's website with many people writing about having this experience. Here is the link. http://discussions.apple.comthread.jspa?threadID=1908432&tstart=0
