1145095 story Picasa Rolls Out 3.0 — Now With Facial Recognition 243 Posted by timothy on Wednesday September 03, 2008 @02:20PM from the face-in-the-crowd dept. eldavojohn writes "If you use Picasa (Google's photo sharing site), they have upgraded to 3.0 and are purportedly offering facial recognition. That's right, why tag photos of your friends when the software will group similar faces together for you? There's a new list of features including repairing old photographs by touching them up and even writing on your images. As expected, not everyone is 'ok' with Google automatically recognizing you in pictures."
