Image management with auto Face Recognition
« on: March 28, 2009, 05:20 AM »
read free image manager - http://www.donationc...ex.php?topic=17543.0
read the shootout review
read photo workflow reviews
read tons of other stuff
read http://photo-organizing-s...review.toptenreviews.com/ (is this legit? or promo?)

still can't find one with face recognition for photos...

does anyone know when this will be available? or of any software that supports it...?

I want something that will be easy for the whole family to use, and on their laptops! That means it has to have a portable database scheme...

I'm thinking the best after all this is a website (hosted at home), that can act like flickr, for each family member! Anyone know of a good solution for that?

Sigh, I am so worried of approaching my photo collection to try and tag and organize it, coz I've already been burnt once, where I lost all the tagged info (from iMatch, then Adobe Elements)...

It's frustrating, we haven't managed to find a good multi-user family friendly image management software yet.

Let's see from the top of my head I remember that for image management these are free & non free contenders
adobe lightroom
adobe photoshop elements
(website Freeware)
(website cloud)

Some mentions of Vista Photo gallery, and the home server variants for photos..

I need help!

Currently system is "Dated folders + event name\camera file name"

maybe i'm thinking all wrong...

The primary reason i need tags is to find people in my photos!
especially family members...
that too to make presentations on special occasions.

i feel so bummed out whenever i think of this monumental task, it's been on my todo for 4 years now! and still nothing has evolved to make it trivial to do this.

this seems like a incoherent rambling train going towards the edge of a cliff

ok ok... summarizing for myself
features like websites (flickr,facebook ...etc.)
 - i.e. individually managed collections
 - private areas
 - backup of photos
 - search for individuals photos (if tagged)

features like apps
 - portable data(base),
 - quick scrolling through thousands of pictures
 - copy photos

has a good write up

maybe i should go bang my head there...

Face recognition in Gallery2?

It is a nice and capable product, but I have now spent already quite some time on its feature pages and could not find anything about that.

However, it is very easy to install/use on a server in your house.
