ECE 172A MATLAB Homework #4 Due Tuesday 10/27/09 Red-eye detection and removal Mini Project Reference : B. Smolka, K. Czubin, J. Y. Hardeberg, K. N. Plataniotis, M. Szczepanski, K. Wojciechowski, “Towards automatic redeye effect removal”, Pattern Recognition Letters Volume 24, Issue 11, July 2003, Pages 1767-1785. In this Matlab assignment, we will implement some parts of the red eye removal algorithm presented in the above paper. We will test the implementation on a small set of images. 1. Database For this project we will work with a small set of 5 images downloaded from the internet. These .jpg images are available on the class website. Download them to your Matlab working folder. Note that the images are all of different sizes. As such, all your Matlab code should be capable of reading and processing images of arbitrary sizes. 2. Search-space reduction Skin tones The first step in detecting the red-eye in an image is to use some heuristics to reduce our search space, that is, instead of searching the entire image, we search a subset of the pixels for possible candidate red-eyes. One way of doing this is to restrict the search to areas that have the color of the human skin.
