In the recent time bioinformatics take wide field in image processing. Face recognition which is basically the task of recognizing a person based on its facial image. It has become very popular in the last two decades, mainly because of the new methods developed and the high quality of the current visual instruments. There are different types of face recognition algorithms, and each method has a different approach to extract the image features and perform the matching with the input image. In

The face recognition system consists of recognizing the faces acquisition from a given data base via two phases. The most useful and unique features of the face image are extracted in the feature extraction phase. In the classification the face image is compared with the images from the database. The proposed algorithm for face recognition in this paper adopt the LBP features encode local texture information with default values. Apply histogram equalization and Resize the image into 80x60, divide it to five blocks, then Save every LBP feature as a vector table. Matlab R2019a was used to build the face recognition system. The Results which obtained are accurate and they are 98.8% overall (500 face image).
