Face detection plays a very important role in pattern recognition and the precision of face detection directly affects the following results. This paper proposes a fast and precise method of face detection in complex background based on skin color model. Firstly, we extract skin color regions of the image. Then we process them with Morphologic processing method and roughly filtering. At last, we show a method to recognize face by geometric feature of eyes, which is similar to the feature of ellipse.
