Abstract: In this paper, we investigate the effect of some illumination normalization techniques on a simple linear subspace face recognition model using two distance metrics on three challenging, yet interesting databases. The research takes the form of experimentation and analysis in which five illumination normalization techniques were compared and analyzed using two different distance metrics. The performances and execution times of the various techniques were recorded and measured for accuracy and efficiency. The illumination normalization techniques were Gamma Intensity Correction (GIC), discrete Cosine Transform (DCT), Histogram Remapping using Normal distribution (HRN), Histogram Remapping using Log-normal distribution (HRL), and Anisotropic Smoothing technique (AS). Results showed that improved recognition rate was obtained when the right preprocessing method is applied to the appropriate database using the right classifier.
