Does Colorspace Transformation Make Any Difference on Skin Detection?

  title={Does Colorspace Transformation Make Any Difference on Skin Detection?},
  author={Min C. Shin and Kyong I. Chang and Leonid V. Tsap},
Skin detection is an important process in many of computer vision algorithms. It usually is a process that starts at a pixel-level, and that involves a pre-process of colorspace transformation followed by a classification process. A colorspace transformation is assumed to increase separability between skin and non-skin classes, to increase similarity among different skin tones, and to bring a robust performance under varying illumination conditions, without any sound reasonings.
