Hi guys

Im doing a project on recognize faces on images. Any suggestions/guides on how to do that using OpenGL? Doesn't need to go to depth, just tell me the exact stuff i should read up and play with will do.

Thanks in advance.

It depends if you want to perform the face recognition on the GPU or on the CPU.
For the first case, see http://www.gpgpu.org/
For the latter, you only need basic stuff like uploading your picture as textures for opengl, drawing a few quads (textured or wireframe) and a proper GUI to manipulate all that.
A bunch of info and tutorials here :
