Face recognition is one of the most important research fields of the last
two decades. This is due to the actual use of this technology in automatic detection
and monitoring systems. Face attribute and features recognition from images is
still a challenge. In this paper, face image recognition is proposed upon local face
image rather than focusing on the whole image recognition by applying preprocessing
techniques and Viola-Jones method. Principal Component Analysis
(PCA) method is used in order to extract the needed features. Experiments show
satisfied and more accurate results achieved by the proposed system comparing to
the existing systems.
