The project in this book was supposed to walk the reader through the steps to making a Photo Booth type App. It would snap a picture then composite a mustache on the face.

I followed the steps from the book but the mustache just never looked right and there isn't anything in the book on how to troubleshoot the problem.

The book just focuses on the coding for the project so no special skills needed.

The project is designed to combine the previous Simple CV lessons into one fun project. It worked for the most part but I just couldn't fix the problem with the mustache.
