Face detection is a image processing technology that determines the location and size of human faces in digital images or video. This module precedes face recognition systems that plays an important role in applications such as video surveillance, human computer interaction and so on. This proposed work focuses mainly on multiple face detection technique, taking into account the variations in digital images or video such as face pose, appearances and illumination. The work is based on skin color model in YCbCr and HSV color space. First stage of this proposed method is to develop a skin color model and then applying the skin color segmentation in order to specify all skin regions in an image. Secondly, a template matching is done to assure that the segmented image does not contain any non-facial part. This algorithm works to be robust and efficient.
