    Is there a way to tag faces in Lightroom that is exportable as metadata?

    JustinKling Level 1

      I'm scanning a bunch of old family photos and I want to be able to tag faces of relatives and export those names and the corresponding faces as metadata. Ideally this metadata would be in some universal format that is then readable by everything- Windows, Mac OSX, Photoshop, Powerpoint, Facebook, Instagram, etc.


      Is that possible via XMP?


      Searchable keywords are great, but they don't go far enough. In a photo of a family reunion from 40 years ago, I need to attach each name to a specific face and know that some future family member will be able to decipher those tags 40 more years into the future.


      I think everyone could benefit from this. Architectural photographers could tag each piece of furniture with the name of the designer, sports photogs could tag several athletes within each pic, wedding photographers could tag the wedding party and family members.


      Is there a way to do that now? If not, is this ability coming soon?
