Abstract
Skin color detection methods often include wrongly pseudo-skin colors which are similar to the skin color and they cannot detect highlight and dark pixels which belong to the original skin color inside or around the detected skin regions. This paper proposes an improved iterative skin detection method for eliminating the pseudo-skin color through Wang’s [2] and Cheddad’s [4] skin filer characteristics. The highlight and dark pixels are detected by adjusting the saturation level adaptively.
