    I've spent a lot of time carefully organizing and labeling a large album of family photos in iPhoto. Family members in each photo are now properly named and added using the "Faces" function. I did this with the hopes of creating a movie of the album to share with my family. During the movie, I was hoping to have those "faces" identified using all that work I did naming them in iPhoto. I was also hoping that each face name would be shown one at a time while the photo is being shown. This would prevent overlapping of names and crowding or obstructing the view of the picture. For instance, in a photo with many people standing close to each other, the face names would overlap if that all showed at the same time. The idea is to have the people I give the movie to be able to know who each person is in the photo.

    Can iPhoto do this? I spent a long time doing this and don't have the time to relabel each picture using a different software or spending lots of money on a different software that I will only use once. There are hundreds of pictures and it would be a shame to need to re-do all the work I've done to make it work. Perhaps there's an app that can take the "face" information from iPhoto and use it to do what I want. Can the face information be exported to another program, like iMovie??

    Thanks for your help

    Not in iPhoto. the names only appear in the Faces function. They don't show otherwise. Faces is just of making Albums of photos of all the same person.
