Finding faces, locating important facial features and model fitting are required in a range of applications including model based video coding. In this paper we present a technique for locating important facial features in head and shoulders colour images. A fast and effective method of detecting skin, while excluding eyes, using PCA transformed CIE-Lab colour space, is described. Candidate eye regions are then processed using region growing and eigenimages using the distance from feature space… CONTINUE READING
