On my Macbook Air after adding names of people in faces I now get "Is this Fred" or "Unnamed" when viewing other photos in Events or Photos in photos which the people I have named or not named when I am viewing the photos. How do I put a stop to that happening. Thanks for any help.

I am not sure there is any way to stop it.

There used to be an option to turn off Faces in iPhoto, but it appears that Apple got rid of it.

About the only thing to suggest is to remove the names that you currently have entered and maybe it would stop asking you if some "new" face is one that you have already named. I don't use Faces (i.e. have never entered any names) for what few photos that I have in iPhoto (I don't really use iPhoto) and I never get any of those sorts of questions.

The name boxes for the Faces feature will appear when you are viewing a photo and have the Info pane visible. Press the Command key + I to toggle the Info pane on or off. You can also click the View menu and then click Info to toggle the Info pane.

You can also leave the Info pane open and remove the name boxes by collapsing the Faces section in the Info pane. Click the Faces section icon or word Faces to collapse that section.

Hope that helps!

Oh I'm using iPhoto '11 version 9.4.3

Thanks to you both for your help I will give your idea a go Bruce and see how it goes. It is a bit annoying when looking at photos and this carry on occurs especially when showing others your photos.
