Abstract

See full text

A method of processing, in a digital camera, an image captured by the camera is provided, which includes locating faces within the captured image by detecting regions of contiguous color which map a hue, saturation and value of the range of human face colors and passing the detected regions through heuristic tests which produce a resulting probability of a face being present in the image, locating eyes of the located faces, and determining if the captured image of the located eyes has been modified by the act of capturing the image. If the image has been modified any unwanted distortions of the located eyes are located in the captured image that have occurred as a result of the act of capturing the image, and the captured image is modified to at least reduce the effect of the unwanted distortions and to produce a modified image.
