Greetings and Happy New Year

Recommended Posts

Hello all,


I'm been lurking this forum for about half a year and I'm especially thankful for the resources it provides.  Over the last 3 years, I've been building an archive of catalog model images and the ability to match a name to a face has been very valuable.  Obviously there are thousands upon thousands of models, so this task is never ending.


I have in my archive database over 5M high resolution images from over 60 catalogs.  I use custom-written software to automate the downloads and also implemented facial recognition to identify each model.  Face recognition is definitely an imprecise technology, but it does work well enough for most cases.  Unfortunately, I have over 16k faces identified in my archive and I have to clean and organize them up when I can.  My time is spent researching new catalogs, downloading images, and cleaning out duplicates.  There's not much time for database maintenance.  I think this is the year I'm going to actually put the website out into the public.  I've just been using it myself for organization and viewing.


Thank you Bellazon for being a valuable tool to help me identify models.
