Vers.3.91: A new toggle switch (default: on) called Facedetect Import/Webcam Image is trying to find a face (red rectangle) in a imported image (F6) or in an imported webcam image. This helps in case the webcam photo is not too good and the program has troubles detecting the face of the person and centering it in the middle of the aura picture. This also helps when adjusting brightness and contrast on a plain imported photo. If brightness or contrast are too extreme the face detection routine might not work. To see this before getting the aura picture you can use the red frame face detection on the plain photo without the aura. If an aura is already displayed you will see directly if the face detection works or not (face in the middle or not). Feature can be switched off.
