    Really awesome example René... interesting because it's Silverlight and also because it's something most developers haven't explore - facial recognition using color spaces - cool!

    Hi Rene good article. i like the custom approach you have used for basic computer vision task but I've been using an opencv c# wrapper called Emgu Cv and i think IMVHO it would fit perfectly in your articles and can help to achieve better result with minor effort.

    Keep up the good work!!

    @Luca Del Tongo, the issue with Emgu Cv is the project is GPL.  GPL is a nice license but Coding4Fun has a non-viral license policy.

    There is also AForge.net which does a pretty good job.

    I thought there was no problem in using Emgu Cv or other gpl libraries... i remember Emgu has already been use here on coding4fun in the excellent Wiimote Virtual Reality Desktop article Smiley

    After performing ColorRangeFilter, the image is shows only in black background. Could you please explain?

    Hi Anistel,

    I describe in the article that a certain color range is filtered and the result is a black / white image. White marks the filtered color.

    If your image doesn't contain any color in the range, you won't see white pixels. The app has some sliders to change the color range. It even shows a preview of the color range on the right side.
