A facial feature extraction method is proposed in this work, which uses location and texture information given a face image. Location and texture information can automatically be learnt by the system, from a training data. Best facial feature locations are found by maximizing the joint distribution of location and texture information of facial features. Performance of the method was found promising after it is tested using 100 test images. Also it is observed that this new method performs better than active appearance models for the same test data.
