Picasa Face Embedder PDF Print E-mail

Picasa Face Embedder takes the face data generated by Picasa and embeds it into your images. This enables Windows and software such as Adobe Photoshop and ACD Systems ACDSee to use the data. The software uses the database files that Picasa generates. These files hold the names of people that Picasa recognises in your photos and the rectangles defining where each person is. Picasa Face Embedder takes this information and embeds it into the files themselves thereby binding the information to your photos so that when you copy or rename your photos the information is still present. The software uses a simple drag and drop interface. To start using the software simply drag a folder containing your photos onto the main window and the software will begin processing your photos.

Prerequisites:

Picasa Face Embedder has been tested with the following versions of Microsoft Windows:

- Windows XP, Windows Vista, or Windows 7.

To use the software you will also need .NET 4 Client Profile. The installer will prompt you to download .NET 4 Client Profile if you do not already have this installed. You will also need Picasa 3.5 or later to generate the Picasa face database files used by this software.

Update Jan 2012: Preliminary testing indicates that this version of Picasa Face Embedder is not compatible with the new “Store Face-Tags in File” option available in Picasa 3.9. Please disable this feature in Picasa in order to continue exporting your face data to ACDSee. An upcoming version of Picasa Face Embedder will address this problem.

Optional software:

Picasa Face Embedder writes meta-data into your photos that can be view by software such as Adobe Photoshop or ACD Systems ACDSee.
