In my last Celebrity Look-alike Generator Shoot Out there were three contenders in the celebrity look alike arena. What is the best doppelganger finder now?
My Heritage Face Recognition is the only tool for finding your celebrity doppelganger for now. I tested a few others and they all failed miserably. Unfortunately, My Heritage now requires you to install a toolbar. Urg. I found this intrusive and was reluctant to continue the test since I hate installing anything spammy that might contain adware, spyware and the like. I installed it anyway, and this is what I found.
When installing the toolbar in firefox and IE there are a couple of additional bundled toolbars they try to sneak on your system. I suggest unchecking the additional toolbars. After doing my tests I was able to both disable, and uninstall the toolbar with no problems in IE and Firefox. So, if you are worried about installing the toolbar, don’t sweat it, just disable or uninstall it when you’re done playing with the software.
On to the test: Not bad! They got that it was Thom Yorke and the other matches share some characteristics.
