Python is becoming increasingly popular programming language. It is a free, high-level language that has a very flat learning curve. It has a wide set of freely available libraries. In this paper computer vision libraries are first discussed. Then Face detection and Face recognition capabilities of libraries available are analyzed. The basic description of the algorithm used in the libraries is given. For each major step an example of the resulting image is provided. Although just two sample images are given in the paper, the algorithm was analyzed on many images. The analysis confirmed that Python is really the tool of choice for face detection and recognition tasks.
