Abstract: : Face recognition has become relevant in recent years because of its potential applications. The aim of this paper is to find out the relevant techniques which give not only better accuracy also the efficient speed. There are several techniques available for face detection which give much better accuracy but the execution speed is not efficient. In this paper, a normalized cross-correlation template matching technique is used to solve this problem. According to the proposed algorithm, first different facial parts are detected likes mouth, eyes, and nose. If any of the two facial parts are found successfully then the face can be detected. For matching the templates with the target image, the template rotates at a certain angle interval.
