Abstract—The redeye effect is typically formed in consumer photos taken with a built-in camera flash. The paper presents a new algorithm of the automatic removal of redeye from digital photos. The proposed algorithm can remove red-eye automatically without manual intervention. First, Detecting faces by using the AdaBoost algorithm. Second, the red-eyes are located by using operations of segmentation, morphology and geometric constraint. Finally, correcting the located red-eyes completely. The experimental results are satisfied with high correction rates, relatively low computational complexity and robustness.

Index Terms—Red-eye removal, AdaBoost, Face detection, Red-eye location.
