Samsung Galaxy S5: How to Use Face Tag Feature Manually in the Stock Gallery App in Android 4.4.2 Kitkat

When the face tag feature in the stock Gallery app is enabled, your phone will scan your photos using facial recognition to detect faces within the photos. When your phone detects a face within a photo, a white frame will be appeared around the face to let you tag a contact to that face. However, your phone may fail to detect a face within a photo due to some reason, e.g: face angle, face skin, skin colour, facial expression, light conditions or object's accessories(e,g: glasses, hat, etc). Fortunately, if your phone fails to detect a face within a photo then you can still tag a contact to the face manually with ease.
