ditto for me. I've been testing the trial version of TTP and would welcome a built-in solution instead. Probably more that the work of a moment to ensure it is well integrated. Would be nice to know if it is on the long term to do list.

I'd be interested too.

FWIW, I also proposed some ways in which face areas could be copied between images, in Mantis (logon required).

Hi paulrbarnard

Thanks for sharing this info! It sounds very interesting, and I am certainly considering Tag That Photo now... :-)
You explain that the name tags applied by Tag That Photo fits well into the Label structure, you use in Photo Supreme. Can I ask, do you have "sub categories" within the "Persons"-category?
Can the label structure used in Photo Supreme be defined in Tag That Photo, so that it fits into custom defined structures like this one:

Mikki,

Yes mine looks very similar. I have several layers of nesting. I'm really not clear how it managed it, I did have some areas linked to labels already, and the majority of TTP names wound up in the right place. The ones that didn't were easy to move to the right location and subsequent uses of TTP added the names to the right locations. All in all it worked very well adding in several thousand older images that were mnot tagged into my library.
What options did you leave ON in TTP?
I find some the people that TTP identified in the Miscellaneous category. Thus creating lots of duplicates.
I have them in either People / Family or People / Relatives
A few were misspelled so understandable but other are the same and still duplicating.

As I start getting used to TTP, I was wondering about the best workflow to use.
As a start, I've started to add the various image folders into TTP. My images are stored by year in folders "/2001" , "/2002", etc. With-in each folder, the the images are in subfolders "/2001-12-31 description text". The actual images are in those subfolders.
Once TTP has found and has assigned names to the faces it finds I will remove that folder from the list to search. No point in going over the same images again and again.
In TTP I have only activated: Write TTP faces & tags to image metadata; both Face region settings, Write keywords and Append people names to keywords metadata locations.
Once the writing by TTP is done, I open PSU and read the metadata from the folders that have been worked on. Make any necessary adjustments and then write back the metadata to the images.
As new photos are made and stored, the process is repeated.
Should I be doing something different?

If you edit any of the images especially like cropping, then the metadata for the person position will not be written / correctly and it will need to be rescanned. Given that TTP runs as a service in background then its use of processing power is minimal even when its rescanning files that have been marked as changed, otherwise it won't be rescanning files that haven't changed since the last scan.
