Google Photos finally lets you manually tag people in pictures

Image
Google is finally adding the ability to manually tag someone in Google Photos, as reported by Android Police.
Google Photos has always been able to automatically recognize faces and sort them for you, which makes managing your library far easier than having to tag people manually.

But the system misses faces sometimes, and there’s never been a way to correct it. Once this feature rolls out — and Google says it’s rolling out now — you’ll finally be able to add in many of the faces it’s been missing.

Basically, if Google sees a face but doesn’t know who it is, you can now identify it. But if Google doesn’t realize that there’s a face in the photo at all, then you still can’t link someone to the photo.

That’s not ideal, but it’s better than nothing. The app tends to miss faces when they’re turned or slightly obscured, which might be times when you’d still appreciate having a person tagged in them.

The feature appears to be part of the latest release of Google Photos, but it’s not available …

Bootstrap, or bootstrapping, is a verb that comes from the saying, "to pull oneself up by his bootstraps." The idiom implies a person is self sufficient, not requiring help from others.
Similarly, in the computing world, bootstrapping describes a process that automatically loads and executes commands.

The most fundamental form of bootstrapping is the startup process that takes place when you start up a computer.

In fact, the term "boot," as in booting up a computer, comes from the word bootstrap. When you turn on or restart a computer, it automatically loads a sequence of commands that initializes the system, checks for hardware, and loads the operating system. This process does not require any user input and is therefore considered a bootstrap process.

While bootstrapping is often associated with the system boot sequence, it can be used by individual applications as well.

For example, a program may automatically run a series of commands when opened. These commands ma…
