Automatic face identification and verification from facial images attain good accuracy with large sets of training datawhile face attribute recognition from facial images still remainchallengeable. We propose a methodology for automatic age andLKgender classification based on feature extraction from facial, images, namely, primary and secondary features. Our methodology · includes three main iterations: Preprocessing, Feature extraction and Classification. Our solution is able to classify images in different lighting conditions and different illumination conditions. Classification is done using Artificial Neural Networks according to the different shape and texture variations of wrinkles on face images.
