Human face detection has become a major field of interest in current research because there is no deterministic algorithm to find face(s) in a given image. Further the algorithms that exist are very much specific to the kind of images they would take as input and detect faces. The problem is to detect faces in the given, colored group photograph. In this paper, an improved segmentation algorithm for face detection in color images with multiple faces and skin tone regions is proposed. Algorithm… CONTINUE READING
