You can also do this when in full-screen mode:

1) Add the D token to an image
2) hit F1
3) type "/Pe"... until it prints "People" in the top part of the display
   window (if you don't see a information window, hit ctrl-i once or
   possibly twice).
4) type the first few letters of your name until it adds your name to
   set of people tags in the display window
5) hit F2

Now, got through the rest of the pictures and hit F1 for pictures you
want to delete, and F2 for ones with you in it.

(and obviously, you can take this further as well)
