It's discouraging to see how poorly Lightroom does facial recognition. As a result, I had to manually add a facial region to hundreds of photos taken at a recent family gathering.

While in Loupe view, Lightroom crashed twice today while I was manually adding facial regions. Is this a known bug? Should i report it to Adobe?

Any suggestions to prevent more crashes?

I do not know if I had a crash today when adding names to about 800 photos. I had about 75 names faces for about 250 photos and about 170 unnamed faces and suddenly all the named faces combined into one name and this name now had 250 photos most of which did not contained the named person. I have no idea how this happened but I assume I did something wrong. About 50 of these named faces had been saved earlier in the day when I exited Lightroom to go do yard work. So I quickly got on google and learned how to back up the catalog to the earlier in the day version so I did not lose all. I am slowly learning Lightroom by using a subset of photos prior to adding all my 25,000+ photos. As Tim Grey says in almost every video ... learn Lightroom first before using. I am learning but golly I do not want some disaster to happen when I am putting hundreds of hours in as I add all my images and keyword as I go.

Hi Phil

Try turning GPU to off? I confess I find face recognition works well (and sorry, never had it crash!)
Paul

I wish I could say that face recognition works well. In one photo, two separate children were identified with the same name! They didn't resemble each other at all except height (and age?).

Adding a facial region is already painfully slow, with my ancient NVidia 660 Ti card. I'd like to get a new card, but I would also not like to overpay by 2-3X.
