Hi all

I am migrating from Picasa to Lightroom, and attempting to recover the many many many hours of work I spent on facetagging approx 100,000 photos. The Picasa facetags were written to xmp from within Picasa, facetag info is saved with the picture. 

Under "Properties" Bridge shows loads of metadata for a picture, under different headers IPCT, Video, Audio, .... The last header is "other" or "unprocessed" (I use a Dutch version so am guessing tab label in English), and some more metadata is shown here as code. In there I found the Picasa facetags labeled as mwg-rs or info on Region. So the facetags are in the metadata, but just not in a manner or place that I can use them as Keyword or Tag or Face in Bridge or Lightroom. In Lightroom the facetags that exist in Picasa show in the list of Keywords but are not assigned to the individual photos where the tag was added. 

Does anybody have a solution for this? 

Thanks
