Facial Recognition - assistance please

Recommended Posts

I have discovered an odd weakness, a failing, in my brain hotel. Simply put, I am rotten at matching persons face to a photo or composite image and visa versa.

Could I get some pointers, tips or tricks people, especially law officers use, in facial identification? Very especially law officers as they often have to use snap judgement at a moments notice.

I'm quite good with the body, height, build and weight. It's just this face issue.

Thanks much.

look at the face structure, eyebrows, lips, hair (if any) etc and see if they match with the person in front of you, odd question

According to a course I once did if you hold the picture upside down, you tend to see more of the structure of the face and anything that basically appears out of context..having said this, it didn't work for everyone. Goodluck
