Gallery Face Groups

This plugin recognizes faces on the pictures of a gallery, and groups pictures by people present on the shot.
Saves a lot of time of finding friends and yourself on the pictures of big events.
See for yourself how it works:

* Demo Gallery
* Grouped Faces of the Demo Gallery

* Operates with most popular Gallery plugin for WordPress – NextGEN Gallery.
* Saves your visitors plenty of time when finding pictures on them and friends.
* You can set the threshold for face matching.
* When new pictures added to the gallery – no need to re-process old ones.
* Easy to insert the grouped pages into any page – using shortcodes.
* Generates pages by request as well.
* Using high-tech biometry
* Looks cool =)

Does your plugin works only with NextGEN Gallery ?

Currently yes, working on others.

What the threshold is for ?

Threshold defines when we presume the face belongs to the same person.

What the timeout is for ?

Timeout defines how often we process next picture. No not to overload really week free hosting set it higher, although on most free hosting 1 second still works.
