Is it possible to have the red rectangle to appear only when the mouse hover the image?
And then would it be possible to have the possibility to add people tag ourseleves, by drawing rectangle and Typing in the name (or choosing from a dropdown list that would be populated from the existing tags on other photos or from a .ini file build over the time from readin/wrointing such tag)?
people tag could be savec using the microsoft xmp standard (I believe Picasa still does not save that info into the file)

I'm not sure how much GeoSetter should support people tags. By now it only reads them from XMP data.

Yes, but take a look at this tool:

Tagging faces makes much more fun with Picasa than using Microsoft Live Photo Gallery. Of course GeoSetter will not contain an automatic face detection. An interesting library is maybe this one: But as I said, I don't know if it really would make sense in GeoSetter. Then it would be FaceSetter ;-)

Thanks for the link. The tool looks great but does not seem to work with anything else than jpeg :( Nonetheless that's already really nice and I will use it for sure for all my jpegs.
As for tagging face I was just thinking about manually doing it when you look at the photo and reallize that one face was missed by the other software. It would be faster to just draw the rectangle in geosetter and assign a name than lauch the other software, find the photo, draw the rectangle,...
Bu I was not really thinking about using the opencv library. That would be a lot of work for something maybe not as good as picasa (google has access to a lot of faces to train its algo:) ) whereas geosetter is still indeed the best ...mmmh geosetting tool. :)

Very old ticket. Picasa changed the way to store faces tags in the meantime, same structure as now used by Adobe Lightroom 6.
