The data in face images are distributed in a complex manner due to the variation of light intensity, facial expression and pose. In this paper the Kernel Principal Component Analysis (KPCA) is used to extract the feature set of male and female faces. A Gaussian model of skin segmentation method is applied here to exclude the global features such as beard, eyebrow, moustache, etc. both training and test images are randomly selected from four different data bases to improve the training. The experimental results show that the proposed framework is efficient for recognizing the gender of a face image even though it is an impersonation face.
