Where can I get "facial recognition" to sort photos?

    Windows Live Photo Gallery doesn't have it.

    I have hundreds of random color photos and I want to sort them
    automatically by facial recognition.

    Where can I get a program to do this?

    Well face recognition and sorting is a feature iPhoto has, but you
    would have need a Mac to run it.

    As for something similar for Windows, I have no idea.

    Use Google for the phrase "Face recognition photo software".

    IIRC the image manager that comes with Photoshop Elements has face
    recognition.

    What does it do for you?
    I doubt it can tell one face from another, so you use it to sort
    pictures with faces from pictures without faces?

    X-posting is not evil when constrained to 3 relevant NG's.

    Actually, it does, and fairly well...
    In fact it recognizes faces in some pictures where it shouldn't (who is
    that new person?)

  12. Can't speak to Picasa specifically, but in general, yes, recognizing
    *individual* faces is
    exactly what's being talked about. It's the hot feature of the year
    for photo organizer
    software (and I can see why, if any of them are any good).

    I had a brief brush with a Facebook feature doing this the other week,
    and it
    didn't do very well, but I hear better reports from other places.

    What's "rude" about it?
    To me, "X-posting" seems worse than Peter Jason's actions.
