Few of the face recognition methods reported in the literature are capable of recognising faces under varying illumination conditions. This paper discusses a new method which can achieve a higher recognition rate than those obtained for existing methods. The novelty of this new method is the use of an embossing technique to process a face image before presenting it to a standard face recognition system. Using a large database of face images, the performance of the proposed method is evaluated
more » ... comparing it against the performances of three existing methods. The experimental results demonstrate the successfulness of the proposed method.
