Abstract: We projected a original method for face matching from face image database. In this technique we have used set of face images because recognition conclusion is based on comparisons of face image database. In this paper we have presented an approach to region based face matching. Here the mean shift low level image segmentation method is used to segment the image into many small regions. As a well-liked segmentation scheme for color image, watershed has over segmentation as compared to mean-shift and also mean-shift conserves edge information of the object very well. The proposed technique mechanically merges the regions that are initially segmented by mean shift segmentation, effectively takes out the object contour and then, matches the obtained mask with test database image sets on the basis of color and texture. Extensive research are performed and the outcome shows that the projected method can reliably figure out the mask from the face image and efficiently matches the mask with face image sets.
