Human Computer Interaction (HCI) is the biggest goal of computer vision researchers. Features form the different facial images are able to provide a very deep knowledge about the activities performed by the different facial movements. In this paper we presented a technique for feature extraction from various regions of interest with the help of Skin color segmentation technique, Thresholding, knowledge based technique for face recognition.
