Face Recognition in digiKam
by Aditya Bhatt for KDE
Most of the proprietary photo suites today like Picasa, iPhoto, and Windows Live automatically recognize, and tag faces in photographs. Auto-tagging saves valuable time that would otherwise be spent doing it manually, considering that many people have thousands of photos. Aided by nepomuk, you would be able to type the name of your best friend in dolphin's search bar or krunner, and the results would contain the same friend's photos.
