Portrait Image Clipping with Rough Face Designation

Ryuji Funayama, Hajime Takezawa, Minehiro Konya and Mitsuhiro Hakaridani

This paper describes a method of portrait image clipping for mobile information tools with poor computational power and easy handling interactive devices like Zaurus. User's designation of rough position and size of a face enables robust and fast clipping. Adaptive face region segmentation and the subsequent process of detecting face parameters make determination of clipping area. We have experimentally proven that our method has a good computational performance and is robust to variations in backgrounds, lighting conditions, individuals and so on.
