Face Detection & Facial Recognition

September 27, 2018

Organizing has never been this personal. The Face Detection & Facial Recognition tool will find the humans in your photographs so that you can name the individuals for quick searching and isolating. ACDSee will immediately learn which names to put to which faces. Never lose grandpa again! Save hours of tedious manual skimming. Keep photos distinguished by client, family member, or person of interest.

    How do you turn this feature off. It is annoying.

  • Gregg OKeefe

    I edited my face picture with my name and now EVERY picture with a face has my name…wtf?

    • Mats Persson

      I have also the same problem. It is better that a new face is called “Unknown” or something like that. I also want to know if I search for my name if every picture (right or wrong) wit my name is coming up as a result of my search?

    How can I force a scan of my whole library, without having to open every folder and select every group of images?

    • James✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

      my question too

    • ACD Systems International

      Hello Gregory, thank you for being part of the ACDSee community. You can use the catalog wizard to select multiple folders. Tools | Database | Catalog files. Hope this helps, have a great day.

        I created the Catalog file, but for facial it still only scans the folder I’m in – how do I force a facial scan of the entire catalog?

        • ACD Systems International

          Hi Joe, you can use the catalog wizard to scan all the folders you want to scan. After the catalog wizard, it will start processing the face data when the application has free resources to run. Or you can set up the indexer in Tools | Options | ACDSee Indexer, when the machine is idling, the indexer will run in the background to catalog the folders you wish to scan.

    Is this information (people category) kept in the IPTC or embedded in the images? If I export images, or have to rebuild database, will this information be preserved? Or if I export images into Adobe Lightroom?

    • ACD Systems International

      Hello Gregory, thank you for being part of the ACDSee community. No the face recognition information is not embedded in an image in this release, it is only stored in our database, so it cannot be shared with lightroom. If you rebuild your database from scratch, it will be lost.

    The video is “broken”…!

  • Bartosz

    how to turn off the outlines of face detection?

  • Mats Persson

    What information can I add to a person that I have give a name? Where do I see the Information and how do I change a name?

  • Mats Persson

    In the “People Manager” why can’t I click on a person and make it as an search for that person?

  • Dmitry Kravchenko

    Is it possible to distinguish between computer-generated person labels and human-confirmed ones (as it was in Picasa)? I have a lot wrong recognitions and would like to hide them until confirmed.

    How to delete wrong recognized person (without assigning any label)?

  • Joe Nay

    Will the Face recognition work on videos as well?

    • ACD Systems International

      Hi Joe, unfortunately, facial recognition will not work on videos as videos cannot be edited in photo studio, only in video studio which does not offer the facial recognition feature at this time.


    Can you please explain the logo type and color coding used for your products?

  • Muammer G

    I agree with what you say. I’m sure a good development will be released
