Abstract
In this paper, we propose a new approach for skin detection in images taken of different people under various illumination conditions utilizing colors and image segmentation based on edge and region integration. The algorithm incorporates vector-based color edge detection, color quantization, and a new kind of region growing. We achieve satisfactory results that most skin areas are detected correctly and efficiently. Our main contribution lies in the combination of multiple cues and fusion of skin detection and image segmentation.
