New Feature in iPhoto--Face Recognition

Just one of the advantages of upgrading your iLife application today, is Apple's newest feature in iPhoto; Faces

I'm all about organization when it comes to my pictures.  Do you ever have a problem of trying to find all of the pictures you have of Mom or Dad or best friend?  Well now you can with Faces.  iPhoto uses face detection to identify faces of people in your photos and face recognition to match faces that look like the same person.  Then you can add names to your photos and be able to find the people you're looking for. 

Once you've put a name to a face in just a few photos, iPhoto will sort them by matching photos to names.  iPhoto then creates a Corkboard with all of your faces.  Click on a face, and iPhoto will show you all of the suggested matches of that person.  You can also flip over the picture to add other information or even their Facebook ID

Faces will also help you create people based Smart Albumns.  Just drag pictures into the Source List and Iphoto creates a Smart Albumn that automatically updates every time you name and confirm more pictures of those people.

I have always organized my photos by using the OS function of Spotlight, by adding metadata to all of my photos; but with iPhoto's new Faces feature, organizing my pictures is so much easier, not to mention a huge time saver.
