HUMAN SKIN COLOR DETECTION AND APPLICATION TO ADULT IMAGE DETECTION

Ryszard S. Choraś

Abstract

In this paper, we aimed at the detection of adult image. The methods of detection mainly focus on the detection/identification of skin region. Skin detection is of the paramount importance in the detection of adult images. Our algorithm is designed to detect human skin color in Y Cb Cr color space. The proposed system finds skin regions and then generates the skin likelihood image. Since the skin likelihood image contains shape information as well as skin color information, we used the skin likelihood image to classify the adult images.
