  • Confirming faces/Redetect faces settings

    Hi

    First, how do I confirm Auto-Named Faces? Obviously, if a face is wrong/unwanted, action is obvious. But what do I do to "confirm" face (so as ACDSee knows it's really OK)?

    Second, I do face detection on Moderate setting. Can I safely change it to Aggressive setting when reviewing images, so that Ctrl+F (Redetect faces) discovers more faces?

    Hi Xyzzy,

    Unlike suggested faces, there isn't really a way to confirm auto-named faces. Under the current design, the only difference between auto-named faces and manually-named (and confirmed suggestion) names is that auto-named faces can change their name when rerunning recognition. But that generally only happens if the name was wrong, and there is now a more similar face with the correct name. If you find a particular face that tends to flip between the correct name and another name, you can manually delete the name, commit that deletion by pressing ENTER, and then re-type the name. But this is a time-consuming process and I generally wouldn't recommend it.

    Being able to commit auto-named faces is a request I've heard a few times, and I've passed the feedback on.

    The Moderate/Aggressive/Conservative slider only affects facial recognition, and has no effect on face detection or the number of faces that are detected in an image.

    Thanks,

      The lack of confirmation is really a big issue, especially because face recognition can fantastically mix family faces. There is no good way to review all current detections, and any recognition rerun can easily shuffle already auto-assigned names.

        Can we exclude some folders from the face recognition.

          Just create a separate topic for this question.

          And going back to the original post, this has not been added in version 2021. So ACDSee style, let's make it half-baked and then drop it altogether.

          Maybe before in v.2030?

            I thought it was added in Pro 2021. If you go to Catalog tab and under people select a person and in the COG setting button change it to suggest names, isn't that what you wanted? I know there should be a better way but this should work.

              Nope, I still cannot confirm detected face in any way.

              If ACDSee guessed name correctly, there is no way to make it disappear from Auto-Named faces.

              Maybe except some tricks with first renaming to some dummy name etc, but I pay for software to facilitate work, not make up convoluted workarounds for things that should be implemented on the first go.
