  • Detects and locks in new faces
  • Robustly detects different postures and expressions on photos taken under various lighting conditions

"Pets are one of the most popular and yet challenging subject when taking photos," said Sean Bi, ArcSoft's Vice President and General Manager of APAC. "The possible applications Pet Detection brings to capture devices makes it so much easier for pet lovers to take pictures of their loved ones."
