Question:  I am doing many comparisons with photographs of family members as young adults, adults and seniors.  Can you advise me on a good software package that may help me?


Answer:  This same question I asked recently myself of my colleague Maureen A. Taylor "The Photo Detective".  Maureen showed me a product called Visual Face Recognition.  You can compare two images side by side or overlay them.  It works very smoothly and is very reasonable at $19.95.  If you would like more details go online to
