Google Picasa 3 sports facial recognition

Posted on Wednesday, September 10 2008 @ 05:34:36 CEST by

TG Daily wrote last week that the latest beta version of Google's Picasa 3 features facial recognition:
Speaking of potentially embarrassing moments, the face recognition can be a bit spooky. After indexing all your pictures, you can sort them in various ways like by rating, colors (in the experimental section you can sort by red, blue, etc) and finally by faces. In the filters menu is a “Show only photos with faces” option that performs pretty much as advertised. After clicking it, I was shown all my people pictures and not a single straggler crept into the mix. It even grabbed a screenshot of the “Ask a Ninja” page that I took almost a year ago, so I’m guessing it someone detects faces by the eyes and approximate shape of the head.

After sorting all the faces out, you can upload the pictures to the PicasaWeb albums and perform what Google calls “Name Tagging”. Here you can name the faces and then further sort them out like show me all the pictures of mom and dad, or beth and josh, etc. According to Google, the face recognition gets better the more you use it.

Hi Thomas,

The post is quite interesting. I believe I'd like to share with you another powerful Face-recognition technique by family social networking MyHeritage.com

It is a strong concept and allows you to integrate pictures with your family tree. I'd request you to take a look at the new feature and share your experience with us.
