In this paper, a detailed experimental study of face detection algorithms based on "Skin Color" has been made. Three color spaces, RGB, YCbCr and HSI are of main concern. We have compared the algorithms based on these color spaces and have combined them to get a new skin color based face detection algorithm which gives higher accuracy. Experimental results show that the proposed algorithm is good enough to localize a human face in an image with an accuracy of 95.18%.
