In this paper, we present a novel database of colored and gray, plausible face images. The database contains almost 389 images of 79 Arab celebrities with automatically generated landmarks acquired from the web in wild-life. We apply face recognition (face detection) using Caffe-Model with open cv to extract faces from images then store them in 256 × 256 pixels images. The dataset is publicly available for research purposes and can be used as a training and testing material in developing
