Facial recognition is one of the new updates in Lightroom CC/6. It’s a feature that i’ve used with Apple’s photo app for my quick iPhone snaps and is very useful in that context. With Lightroom however I normally start a new catalog file every year and have it organized by shoots that are normally 1 time events like a wedding. So being able to view the photos of a specific bride by facial recognition won’t really be helpful in most of my cases. But if you are using Lightroom in a more general way and have photos of people at different locations and over time this can be pretty handy! Check out the video below for more info.

What do you think of this addition, is it something you will use?
