We should no longer refer to Google's Picasa in the following sentence as it is now retired. Also it should be by uploading photos, not but uploading photos.

You can evaluate the effectiveness of facial recognition in free software such as Google’s Picasa or the Facebook photo tagging system, but uploading photos of a variety of people and seeing if it recognises photos of the same person.

From the facial recognition section in the computer vision chapter.

Picasa is also referred to in the opening paragraph:

These days photo album systems like Picasa and Facebook can try to recognise who is in a photo using face recognition.
For example, the following photos were recognised in Picasa as being the same person, so to label the photos with people's names you only need to click one button rather than type each one in.

We should mention that Picasa is now retired/discontinued, or update the image to use a different album system to recognise faces such as Google Photos.
