A method for determining the presence of a face from image data utilizes at least first and second algorithms. The first algorithm prescreens the image data, by determining a plurality of face candidates utilizing a pattern matching technique that identifies image windows likely to contain faces based on color and shape information. The second algorithm processes the face candidates determined by the first algorithm, and uses a posterior probability function classifier to determine the presence of the face.
