Picasa 3, people’s names, and “Why doesn’t this work right, Google?”

So, I’ve been using Picasa 3 to organize photos. Great software, except for one big let-down.

One of the cool features I read about before downloading version 3, was the new face recognition engine. Unfortunately, it turns out that this is web-only. Meaning, all the work you do labeling the faces doesn’t get synced back to the local client which seems to limit it’s usefulness for no reason.
