I am looking for an open source software for editing pictures specially editing faces. Any sources or codes would help me, no matter what language it's written in.

Very interesting question - would like to know this, too. But it's off-topic here. Voting to migrate to superuser.com –  Pekka 웃 Sep 14 '10 at 9:34
Do you perhaps mean open-source libraries for editing faces? –  Justin L. Sep 14 '10 at 9:37

I don't know if any image manipulation program already uses it, but there's libface library available. It performs face recognition - what do you mean with "editing faces"?

If you mean basic features such as red-eye removal or removing pimples/scars, then DigiKam has at least a very good red-eye removal function and GIMP has a healing tool for scar etc removal.

@Ehsan Mamakani: It would a good idea for you to re-phrase your question, then. More detailed and verbose questions will lead to better answers than one-liners where we basically has to use our crystal balls to guess what the asker had in mind. Also please mention the platform (Windows, OS X, Linux) you're mostly interested in. –  Janne Pikkarainen Sep 15 '10 at 9:10
