In this study, we present an evaluation of using various methods for face recognition. As feature extracting techniques we benefit from wavelet decomposition and Eigenfaces method which is based on Principal Component Analysis (PCA). After generating feature vectors, distance classifier and Support Vector Machines (SVMs) are used for classification step. We examined the classification accuracy according to increasing dimension of training set, chosen feature extractor–classifier pairs and chosen kernel function for SVM classifier. As test set we used ORL face database which is known as a standard face database for face recognition applications including 400 images of 40 people. At the end of the overall separation task, we obtained the classification accuracy 98.1% with Wavelet–SVM approach for 240 image training set.
