Simple tool for blurring out faces in your shared photos to protect you and your friends' privacy.
In today's digital age, it's getting harder and harder to protect your privacy. Your address, telephone number, email, location, name, age, birthday, credit card information... All have become goats for sacrifice as part of our quest to be more interconnected than ever before.
But if there is one thing left, it is your image. The unique combination of features that we call a face may be all the private information you retain from the internet, but for how long? Think about it - between Facebook, Imagify, Picasa, and everything else you ever submit photos or even an avatar to, your face (along with those of all your friends and family members with whom you have appeared in a picture, we might add) is probably already out there, and probably more than once. And all this is public, meaning that anybody could pretty much exploit it for practically anything, without you ever knowing. That's not good.
More importantly, it's not just your information that's at risk. Think about all the other people in your photos, who probably don't want their privacy exposed, either. It's one thing to disservice yourself, it's another thing to disservice others.
Some websites have taken the initiative of allowing you to blur faces out. But, they only let you do it after you've submitted the picture first. That's still pretty worrisome since you have no idea what happens to the original.
So, here's a good idea: blur out the faces from your photos locally. Don't worry - it's not slow as a snail, as most local processes are. No, faceblur is fast, lightning fast and fully automatic.
Just drag and drop a photo, and it will identify and blur every face in there within a second. Want to leave some faces un-blurred? No problem! Just click that face, and it will be instantly un-blurred. And there, you're done! A blurred and secure photo is available for you to share with the world!

Uses Auto face recognition - The app uses auto face recognition thus you can't put a blur on things not recognized as a "face" by the app. Didn't recognize side views and some distant faces thus not very useful. If you allow blurs to be manually applied it would be great.
Does OK - It does limited groups pretty well. We publish large group photos and the app struggled to identify all of the faces. Some were partial but others were wide open. It did reduce edit time so it has value. Would like to to be able to apply manual blurs for thos it misses.
