I have a heap of photos in iphoto that are currently unnamed. These photos are unfortunately not recognised when I'm in "faces". I created a smart folder to hold these photos. I tried to highlight a group 10 or 15 photos and name them, but only the first photo carries the name and the rest remain unnamed. Any clues?
Thanks in advance,
Dave

I think you need to rename the photos BEFORE you copy them to iPhoto.

Its a pain, but what about:

Copying the files you want to rename to a folder on your desktop
Then use something like Name Mangler (http://www.manytricks.com/namemangler/) to rename them all
Delete your originals in iPhoto, then 'move' the renamed version back into your iPhoto library.
