I'd like to send funny results of the brand new face detection to Adobe. Maybe you can benefit from it, to improve this function. Unfortunately I can not find a way to get in contact directly with Adobe. Anyone got an idea?
Just as we see shapes in clouds, it is going to have problems in the beginning. It uses an algorithm to detect what it considers faces and then you have to intervene and say "yes" or "no" to the images. Once it starts receiving those from you, it will be more accurate. It learns, over time. My LR even accurately detects people in photographs on walls. Just take the time to teach it that the wadded up fabric is not a person.
