Just the ability to view images already tagged with regions and names would be a very useful feature. Showing the tagged regions and names would be a good start!jmoliver wrote: ↑Thu Jun 20, 2019 3:22 pmSure will. I have been working with these tags for quite some time so I have garnered some experience with them. I will prepare a sample set of images with some cases to aid you in any future implementation.xnview wrote: ↑Thu Jun 20, 2019 11:30 amcould you send me image with these tags?jmoliver wrote: ↑Wed Jun 19, 2019 2:15 pmFace detection and recognition is difficult, but XnView could simply start with reading these schemas (MS People Tags, MWG Regions, and IPTC Person Shown), and listing the People Names similarly as "tags" for search. Adding and editing people tags and optionally with delimited regions on the image could be similar as other apps allowing users to mark such regions.
Here are some links:
MS People Tag Spec: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/window ... -reference
MWG Spec (pdf) starts at page 51: https://web.archive.org/web/20180919181 ... idance.pdf
The tricky part about People Tag Rectangles / Face Regions in images if it is cropped, resized, or rotated. The MWG discusses this and how to manage it.

I recently started using Tag That Photo, and whilst its a great facility not involving the cloud, it lacks a separate viewer that could be included with packages of images for showing the images and metadata. TTP seem to be under the impression the XnViewMP might be a suitable package so have been quietly waiting ...... is there any sign perhaps a viewing feature appearing anytime soon ?
