Search for faces

How it works

Based on face detection and analysis ‘Excire Search for Faces’ finds images that contain one, two or several faces. Further facial properties can be used for filtering such as, for example, to see only faces of people who smile. Excire Search also recognizes gender and age groups.

The user dialog is opened by selecting the corresponding menu item in Library→Plug-in Extras→Excire Search. or by using the keyboard shortcuts ⌥⌘G (macOS) and Ctrl+Alt+G (Windows).

1 Search for Faces will retrieve images that contain one, two or several frontal faces. If the number of faces does not matter, you should select the option ‘any.’ The ‘portrait’ option will find single, frame-filling frontal faces.

2 In addition, Excire distinguishes the following age categories: Baby/Toddler, Child, Teenager/Young Adult, Adult and Elderly. Multiple choices are possible.

3 The "Gender" and "Smile" features can be controlled with a slider and are especially handy for searching for group shots ("multiple faces"). If the slider is set to "Female", photos containing faces of women will be found.

However, if the slider is set to "Male", photos with faces of men will be found. If the slider is set to the middle, photos will be found with both women's and men's faces.

4 The attribute ‘Smiling’ works similarly. Moving the slider to the right yields images that mainly contain persons who are smiling. “No smiling” persons can be found if you move the slider to the opposite direction.
Each search can be conducted either for the whole catalog or the current filmstrip.

5 The maximum number of result images is restricted to 5000, but please be aware the larger the number, the more time it will take to display the result. If you don’t need to store a search result, you should enable the override option. Otherwise, your previous Excire Search collections will all be stored and organized in a hierarchical structure.
