Feature-Finding > Find Facial Features

Finds facial features in the Current Image such as frontal faces, profile faces, eyes, nose, mouth, and others .

1. Feature

Sets type of facial feature to detect

  • Face Frontal: Detects front-facing faces using CART-based classifiers [1]
  • Face Profile: Detects upright face profiles using Haar features passed through a decision stump
  • Eye Pair (small): Detects pairs of eyes. Better suited for smaller eye pairs [2].
  • Eye Pair (large): Detects pairs of eyes. Better suited for larger eye pairs [2].
  • Left Eye: Detects left eye using Haar features passed through a decision stump [2]
  • Right Eye: Detects right eye using Haar features passed through a decision stump [2]
  • Nose: Detects nose using Haar features passed through a decision stump [2]
  • Mouth: Detects mouth using Haar features passed through a decision stump [2]
  • Upper Body: Detects the upper body (i.e., head and shoulders area) [3]

2. Weakness

Factor which controls the weakness of facial feature finding. The higher the weakness, the less sensitive the feature-finding algorithm. (Recommended: 4-10)
