What is Fairfax FaceMatch®?
The Fairfax FaceMatch® algorithm uses the shape of facial features to find a resemblance between the photo you upload and the adult photos of our donors. The sophisticated mathematical formulas compare two facial images. Once you select a photo from your hard drive and upload it into the system, Fairfax FaceMatch® will compare it to every adult donor photo and provide results starting with the donor who most resembles the photo. Matches are rated based on a High, Med, Low scale, where High matches occur infrequently. Donor photos remain private.
How do I perform a Fairfax FaceMatch®?
1. To access Fairfax FaceMatch® go to the Donor Search and click on the “FaceMatch” on the right gray tab.
2. If you wish, you may then select the preferred ancestry of your donor, eye color and hair color. Remember the more narrow your search, the fewer High matches will result.
3. Select a photo from your hard drive by clicking Browse. You can use personal photos you have saved or ones you find on the internet and saved to your hard drive. Once you have found the photo you wish to use click Upload and Search.
4. Fairfax FaceMatch® will compare the photo you upload to every adult donor photo we have and provide matching results starting with the donor chosen with the greatest resemblance. Results are rated on a High, Medium, Low scale. Remember, matches are based on the shape of facial features and not on donor coloring or ancestry. Match results may take up to 60 seconds.
How do I choose the best photo?
Select a close, cropped photo with good lighting and a high-quality image. The subject should be facing forward and making eye contact. The person should not have a heavy beard, thick-rimmed glasses/sunglasses, or hat. In addition, avoid strong smiles to avoid moving the facial structure.
When I uploaded my photo I got mostly low match results. What might be wrong?
Please be sure your photo image meets the “best photo” recommendations detailed above. If you have limited your search results by ancestry, eye or hair color, consider widening your search criteria to allow the system to match the largest number of donors. You may also get a low number of High or Medium matches for a search looking for a minority group as we have a smaller number of minority donors available.
What type of image can I use?
The system will accept any standard image file such as .jpg, .bmp, or .gif.
I want to learn more about what my favorite donor looks like. Is there someone who can discuss this with me?
