Google Picasa- With face recognition- OK when it works!

Postby chrisjlocke » Mon Nov 09, 2009 8:51 am

Not really web development, but computer based, so it can live in here!

Downloaded the new version of Google Picasa, which has a handy image recognition feature. It scans the pics and pulls out the faces, allowing you to quickly tag photos with peoples names. It then recognises these people in other pictures, etc, allowing you to quickly tag the photos.

It even found faces in photos and paintings in the backgrounds of photos. I thought it was doing really well, until it came across a painting of my girlfriends dog... :lol:

Overall, the tagging thing is really good and accurate. Great to create albums of people.

To point this thread to a more web-development relevant direction, have a look at this ;)
