Facial Recognition Now in Google’s Picasa

If you have your photo library stored using Picasa, it’s new release Picasa 3.6 can now allow you to scan your entire photo library and applies a name tag to every match; if it’s not sure of the match, it will allow the option of applying the tag manually. Wow! The TechCrunch article goes on to say that once faces are tagged, users can create a face collage of the same person, time-lapse movies, or sync the tags with the user’s Picasa Web albums.

Facial recognition isn’t new with Picasa. iPhoto and Facebook Photos using Face.com have had it for some time now. So, does that mean facial recognition is now going to be a standard in photo-oriented web and desktop apps?
