Our Database of Faces
The ORL Database of Faces contains 400 images from 40 distinct subjects. For some subjects, the images were taken at different times, varying the lighting, facial expressions (open / closed eyes, smiling / not smiling) and facial details (glasses / no glasses). All the images were taken against a dark homogeneous background with the subjects in an upright, frontal position (with tolerance for some side movement). The size of each image is 92x112 pixels, with 256 grey levels per pixel.
