Yesterday Apple updated iPhoto to version 8.0.3, fixing issues with photo publishing. Prosopagnosia (version 1.1.1) does not yet support the new version of iPhoto and an update is in the works and should be expected sometime after the weekend.
Starting with version 8.0.2 rudimentary address book integration is built into iPhoto, which allows you tag Faces using the contacts found in your address book. Prosopagnosia, however, takes this one step further, allowing you to transfer contacts from other address sources than Apple Address Book as well as transferring contact information into already existing Faces. Prosopagnosia can also set contact pictures in Address Book using the pictures from your iPhoto Library.
To make sure Prosopagnosia doesn’t mess up eventual iPhoto libraries we have prevented compatibility of future iPhoto updates without testing them thoroughly first. Yesterday Apple updated iPhoto to version 8.0.2 and thus we are updating Prosopagnosia to 1.1.1. Enjoy!
This update includes:
- Support for iPhoto 8.0.2
We are happy to announce the release of Prosopagnosia 1.1.
This update includes:
- Added ability to set contact pictures in Address Book.
- Scroll wheel bugfix. Prosopagnosia is now more responsive when using the mouse to scroll through faces.
Swedish software companies dessibelle and Graphiclife are happy to announce Prosopagnosia for Mac OS X. Prosopagnosia is the missing link between the Faces feature in iPhoto 09 and the user’s address book to ensure correct tagging of pictures uploaded to Facebook.
Prosopagnosia matches the names of the people tagged in Faces with the contact information found in Apple’s Address Book, Microsoft Entourage, Google Mail or Mozilla Thunderbird. The program automatically transfers email and full name of the contacts back into Faces in order to complete the information required for a successful tagging of friends when uploading pictures to Facebook.
The user can choose to transfer information from more than one address book source. Prosopagnosia finds the best match and allows the user to ensure that the correct matches have been made through an easy to use Cover Flow interface. If the match found happens to be incorrect, the user can easily change to another contact suggested by Prosopagnosia.
Prosopagnosia also includes a backup feature, making sure that if something should go wrong during the transfer process, the user can always restore the Faces database to a previous working state.
Prosopagnosia can be bought online or through the store built into the application.
