Database: Faces & Sketchs
The UMIST Face Database consists of 564 images of 20 people. Each covers a range of poses from profile to frontal views. Subjects cover a range of race/sex/appearance. Each subject exists in their own directory labelled 1a, 1b, ... 1t and images are numbered sequentially as they were taken. The files are all in PGM format, approximately 220 x 220 pixels in 256 shades of grey. Pre-cropped versions of the images may be made available by contacting
The Yale Face Database (size 6.4MB) contains 165 grayscale images in GIF format of 15 individuals. There are 11 images per subject, one per different facial expression or configuration: center-light, w/glasses, happy, left-light, w/no glasses, normal, right-light, sad, sleepy, surprised, and wink.
The XM2VTS Database:
The database has two parts. The first part contains a 100 colour images of faces with variations in background (indoors, outdoors, complex, simple) facial structural components (beards, moustaches, and glasses), poses (frontal, near-frontal, profile), orientation (upright and upside down), facial expressions, imaging conditions (poor quality, good quality) occluded areas, age, gender, race and size. The images have been captured from the following sources:
It should be noted that all the pictures in
the database are original pictures from the source without performing
any processing such as colour correction, sharpening, noise removal,
etc. This ensures that the images in the database reflect actual images
that might be encountered by face detection algorithms. No restrictions
are imposed on the face size or image resolution. Details of the
database are shown in Table 1 in terms of 3D pose, orientation,
structural components and occlusion.
3D Pose of the Face:
The definitions above are subjective as accurate pose estimation is an entirely different area of research. Our definitions only serve the purpose of comparing the performance of face detection algorithms for different poses.
Orientation of the Face:

The image dataset is
used by the
CMU Face Detection Project
and is provided for evaluating algorithms for detecting frontal and
profile views of human faces. This test set was collected at CMU by
Henry Schneiderman and
Those images are not restricted
in terms of subject matter or background scenery. They were collected
from various news Web sites.
This database contains 236 images of Champions database, and each image involves one face.
The JAFFE database consists of 213 images of 7 different emotional facial expressions.
The face sketch Database is provided by the Chinese University of Hong Kong, which contains 21 face sketches and their corresponding photo images. Besides, there are another 15 photo images without corresponding sketches. All images in the Database are frontal and gray.
