Lightroom 6 has been announced, and (finally!) it does facial recognition and tagging! Hooray! It does mean a lot of work I’ve done in migrating face data from Picasa to Lightroom might now be redundant… although if I have to re-tag thousands of photos I’ll still be writing a utility to migrate the data for me. Can’t wait to get my hands on it! You can see the Adobe tutorial here:
Apparently this is also the last version of Lightroom that’ll be available as a standalone program, and all future releases will be the Creative Cloud versions. Hmm. Not sure how I feel about that.
