Human Skin Texture Analysis using Image Processing Techniques

Damanpreet Kaur | Prabhneet Sandhu [2]


Abstract: The skin properties like skin dryness, fungus and allergic symptoms i. e. etching kind of problem correlation with skin texture profile is discussed in the proposed thesis work. In the existing scenario, the skin images are analyzed in frequency domain. However, it is observed that the skin color in texture images does not vary over a wide range. Hence, the histogram profile of the skin texture remains almost flat. In the proposed work, we have shifted the skin texture analysis towards the gray level profile analysis. The gray color profile of the skin texture may give fair idea about the skin sensitivity and is a new emerging skin texture analysis tool. In the proposed work, skin gray color profile has been taken as the input parameter in order to ascertain the skin profile. In the proposed thesis work, Gray Level Co-occurrence Matrix of the skin image is computed. The GLCM functions characterize the texture of an image by calculating how often pairs of pixel with specific values and in a specified spatial relationship occur in an image, creating a GLCM, and then extracting statistical measures from this matrix. Further, the image entropy and energies are also computed in order to correlate the skin symptoms to the skin texture images
