Centralize faces in thumbnail in social network photo wall

On community websites, people love to upload the images to share with others about their life or interesting things. Especially nowadays, images have become more and more important for design and identity on the user interface, like your profile picture, cover photo, shared link thumbnails or sharing photos in galleries and on the timeline.

However, when people share the photos on community website or social media, the image is generated automatically to fit within a functional image box, for example, 470 px by 470 px. If people upload the multiple photos, the images are scaled to different px based on the properties of the images (landscape or portrait). The problem is that the images are scaled/trimmed after uploading and the main focus might be lost, such as you take the photo for your friend (but the friend is not located at the middle of the photo), after uploading the image to the community website, the image is scaled and your friend might be cut off.

In this invention, we presented the method to detect the users' faces and keep the faces still on the focus after uploading to community website. Even there are many people in the photo, we still can identify the faces and combine the images by group into animated GIF/ video. Moreover, this method can be used to not only community website, but also the computer devices.
