There is a rather short thread from last year here: Photo Software for Windows


The main feature I'm after is face recognition and tagging so I can turn a not-very-large (only about 10GB) collection of photos arranged in folders arranged by date and activity into a searchable database principally of people.
Because I'm tagging people by recognising their faces, I'd much, much rather do it locally on my HDD rather than in some cloud service of debatable security.
I am prepared to pay cash money for this, but would prefer to spend less than two hundred dollars - $19.95 would be fine, though!


I have a mate who raves about doing this with iPhoto, but I don't have a Mac or an iThing, and it's cloud-based anyway.




Ideas, please
