This is the last week of our craft giveaway – it’s been a pretty great month so far, don’t you think?!? I have some excellent tutorials lined up for the next few weeks and another big giveaway is coming up soon, so stick around for more home, family, crafts, and kids!

We have 3 more products up for grabs this week and they’re all going to help you with the technical side of crafting.

TODAY’S PRIZE

picsmatch

One reader will win the PicsMatch Photo Organization/Face Recognition Software ($69.99).

REVIEW

If you take as many pictures as I do, you have way more pictures than you can possibly keep organized. I am constantly struggling to keep all my photos organized and backed up! And so many times I know exactly what picture I want to use, but I cannot find it anywhere in my files and files of pictures.

PicsMatch is a great solution to all these picture pains because it helps you find, organize, and edit your photos.

Find – Once you upload all your pictures into PicsMatch (usually an overnight proces, you just get it started and let it do its thing.) you can label each person in your photos. PicsMatch will recognize the people in the pictures and organize them according to the label you gave them!

For example, if I want to find a specific picture of my son, I just look in the folder that now contains every picture that he is in, and I can find it easily.

The face recognition technology that PicsMatch uses is highly accurate – it’s amazing! Being able to search for certain people in my thousands of pictures has really been wonderful because I can find what I’m looking for so much faster.

Organize – Besides being able to organize by faces, you can also organize your photos by event. Then you can search for a certain person at a certain event, narrowing down the results and finding the picture quickly.

Edit – Once you find the photo you’re looking for, you edit it within PicsMatch. You can apply many different kinds of affects, change from color to black and white, and much more.

I have really enjoyed having my pictures in PicsMatch because it’s lots of fun to look at all my pictures of a single person at once. Viewing pictures this way lets me see how each person in our family has grown and changed in a way I couldn’t do before.

Using the PicsMatch organization software means I spend less time searching for photos and more time scrapbooking them!

This is a great giveaway!! This is pretty cool software–I’m constantly trying to keep my pictures organized and with the amount I take it can be a nightmare. I love that this has facial recognition detection…doesn’t get much cooler than that!!

32 Mel March 23, 2009 at 2:48 pm

I could sure use this software…I’m an avid photographer and shoot thousands of photos a year–even with culling out the bad ones, it still amounts to a lot of photos to catalog and search…this would be a great tool!

Not only does the software have photo ID and face recognition and the ability to organize all of your photos, the Zoom Editing Suite is awesome, with it, you can crop your pictures, remove red eye, sharpen, contrast, etc., and create effects, like age, and so much more. Really cool software. I’d love to win it!
