Face Recognition of Photos in Google Picasa 3

This Tuesday Google is set to launch facial recognition in it’s photo managment software according to cnet (here).

Why is this important? Firstly Picasa (here) is still the best photo managment desktop software on the market (and it’s free). I’ve been using it for a few years, have tried all the competitor products and it wins hands down every time. Note: It’s not as social as Flickr – so I use them both.

Picasa3 will find and sort all the photos of the same person.

Facial recognition: I have about 18,000 digital photos sitting on my drive at home. Picasa handles them all nicely – but sorting, tagging etc is a nightmare. Finding a photo of someone is a manual process – this will hopefully correct that. The idea – tag one photo of a person and Picasa will do the rest. It’s apparently not perfect – but this will be a huge jump for Picasa.
