However, the recognition accuracy rate is still not high enough. This research aims to develop a method to increase the efficiency of recognition using global-face feature and local-face feature with four parts: the left-eye, right-eye, nose and mouth. This method is based on geometrical techniques used to find location of eyes, nose and mouth from the frontal face image. We used 115 face images for learning and testing. Each-individual person's images are divided into three difference images for training and two difference images for testing. The Two-Dimension Principle Component Analysis (2D-PCA) technique is used for feature extraction and the Support Vector Machine (SVM) method is used for face recognition. The results show that the recognition percentage is 97.83%.
