We describe an automatic, low-cost method for classifying skin color, independent of lighting and imaging device characteristics, using consumer digital cameras and a simple color calibration target. After color normalization and face detection are performed as described in prior work, pixels within the face region are clustered in color space in an unsupervised fashion, and a Gaussian mix...
