Skin color provides a useful cue for detecting faces and reproducing preferred colors. However, skin color detection based on just a static model often decreases the detection rate, as skin color in an image captured by a camera undergoes variations as the illumination changes. Thus, to enhance skin color detection using a static model, the color of an estimated illuminant from images captured under various illumination conditions is converted to that of a canonical illuminant. First, the… CONTINUE READING
