iLovePhotos Does the Hard Work

Most photographers have plenty of photos that they need to keep organized — and they upload more all the time. But what if you had a photo program that could use facial recognition and visual tagging to cut down on the work you have to do? That’s exactly what iLovePhotos does, even to the point of allowing you to set up automatic emails for tags.

Unfortunately, iLovePhotos is still in a private beta. You can request an invite on their site, though, and it seems likely that they’ll be sending out a batch of invites soon. The software was officially launched today at DEMOfall 08.
