I strongly suspect (and apologise!) that this topic has been raised previously, but I have failed to find an answer.

I add an image to a person. The image contains many people.

I want to add the same image to all those people.

From what I can read it appears that I must add the image to each person separately.

A very tedious process.

I would like to be presented with a list of all persons and just tick those in the photo.

I thought perhaps there might be an SQL program to achieve this but I can find nothing.

Or perhaps I am missing something?

You are correct that it is one at a time.

 

There are two ways to do the "one at a time" process. One way is to go to each person in turn and do an "Add from Gallery" to add the photo. The other way is to go to the media file and do a Add Tag. But either way you have to add the photo to each person as a separate operation.

Thank you Gerry.

I didn't know about the ADD TAG method.

That looks to be a bit quicker.
