iLovePhotos lets Mac users manage photos using facial detection technology
The Mac-based software features a facial detection platform and an online photo album to simplify the process of identifying, finding, and organizing people, places and pictures. Much in the same way that people tag pictures in Facebook's Photo applications, users can tag individual or groups of pictures, and those who are tagged, are automatically notified with a link to their picture, as well as a link that includes a cumulative gallery of all pictures, from any photographer, tagged with their name.
The smart application not only creates online event-based albums, but can also automatically generate portable, custom slideshows based on tags, such as "Ashley" and "Cancun." These slideshows can be embedded in web sites, blogs, and social network profiles and synced with iTunes for viewing on iPods, iPhones and Apple TVs.â€¨â€¨According to the IDC report, Worldwide Digital Image 2007-2011 Forecast: The Image Capture and Share Bible, nearly 500 billion digital photos will be taken worldwide this year. (1)â€¨â€¨The iLovePhotos Mac software can both complement and synchronize with iPhoto or act as a standalone photo manager. As users import pictures, the software automatically detects the faces of the individuals in each picture. This allows users to filter their library to show only photos of specific people.
As you start typing a personâ€™s name, iLovePhotos pulls their full name and contact information from your address book. Using this information, iLovePhotos allows you to set up automatic sharing feeds. For example, if Jane wants to share pictures of her newborn with her mother and close relatives, iLovePhotos can send those pictures to her family every time her newborn is tagged. Each photo is automatically uploaded by the software to iLovePhotos.com and the recipient receives an email with a link to the images being shared with them.â€¨â€¨iLovePhotos can help people bring long-lost photos back into their lives. It does this by creating intelligent personalized slideshows based on how often people appear in photos, who they appear next to most frequently, and many other attributes. These slideshows can be embedded online or watched on an iPhone, iPod, or Apple TV.
