Hey!!!  Are you tired of counting faces in photos of your wedding/class party/ birthday program??? Must be “Yes” 😉 😉 😉

So, Here is the solution for you.

we are using opencv-python for detecting the number of faces. The cascade classifier ‘haarcascade_frontalface_default.xml’ will detect faces in the photo.

Python Code:

import cv2
face_cascade = cv2.CascadeClassifier('C:\Users\Desktop\Python\
img = cv2.imread('C:\Users\Desktop\Python\image.JPG')
gray = cv2.cvtColor(img, cv2.COLOR_BGR2GRAY)
faces = face_cascade.detectMultiScale(gray, 1.3, 5)
print "number of face(s)= " + count_faces


in this code we have to import opencv by using

import cv2

directory of the xml file (frontal face) should be written correctly..  In this code cv2.CascadeClassifier is using the XML file by,

face_cascade = cv2.CascadeClassifier('C:\Users\Desktop\Python\

Also the image directory should be written in this manner,

img = cv2.imread('C:\Users\Desktop\Python\image.JPG')


Output should be like this,

    Definitely believe that which you said. Your favorite reason appeared to be on the web the easiest thing to be aware of.
