I have played a bit with the face location in iPhoto. It is prone to identify rock formations as being faces. It even identified the derriere of someone facing away from the camera as being a face. Face tracking is not necessarily easy. Especially if you want to process other species (it is difficult to figure out which part of a star-fish is the face, for example.)

There was a little embroidery on the jeans of the image I am referring to. It wasn't much, and was only on one side. But you can imagine my surprise when iPhoto boxed the area and asked, "Is this a picture of Walter Roberson?". I might not be even close to a movie star, but I didn't think I looked like an ass!

try to identify faces using face color features.
It has many limitations,
>> It will identify only limited set of people(based on color)
>> False detection(skin of hand,skin color objects)
