my use case is a small organisation, we have a lot of photos, it would be great to easily access photos of person XY.
I am thinking if I should use digicam (with face recognition) locally, or Nextcloud Photos with face recognition. Some questions about Nextcloud Photos:
- there are two different apps GitHub - matiasdelellis/facerecognition: Nextcloud app that implement a basic facial recognition system. and GitHub - nextcloud/recognize: 👁 👂 Smart media tagging for Nextcloud: recognizes faces, objects, landscapes, music genres – what is the difference? Advantages/disadvantages?
I only found this opinion AI and Photo's 2.0 - In-Depth Explanation of Nextcloud Recognize and How it Works - #5 by flow-axel which basically says facerecognize works beter than recognize
People/Faces cannot be manually assigned or corrected, right?
Hot to manually tag persons?
Manually Tagging Photos · Issue #168 · matiasdelellis/facerecognition · GitHub and
Manual tagging when face not detected · Issue #611 · nextcloud/recognize · GitHub and
Ability to create a new person. · Issue #603 · nextcloud/recognize · GitHub
I think then these apps will not be useful for us, as I expect that the machine will not be perfect… as far as understand, digikam can do this.
- I read that it will recognize people from my address book. What is your experience with this feature? What if a cluster is assigned the wrong contact from my address book, or no contact at all?
- portability: Is the facial recognition data written into the file (as it is possible in digicam afaik) so that when the file moves, or is restored from a backup, the data is still there? What happens if I move the photo to external storage, is the face recognition data still available?
Btw thanks for the insightful/helpful articles How we got to the new Nextcloud Photos! - #6 by devnull and
