iPhoto09 and Faces

A huge disappointment for pet owners, was word that iPhoto's newest feature, Faces, wouldn't recognize animals according to Apple employees on the show floor. We even did a few tests at Macworld Expo with images they had of the dog Luce.

Well, we are happy to say that we were able to get iPhoto to recognize Robbie's cat, Lola.

In clear images with two cats to choose from, the feature was able to pick out the correct cat. Like adding people to faces, the key is to train the software to recognize a person, or animal in this case, by tagging a few images manually.

Check out our cat recognizing images and try out your own animals and drop your experience in the comments.
