Aiming to solve a series of problems in photo collection over citizen’s license, this paper proposes Portrait Extraction Algorithm over our face based on facial detection technology and state-of-the-art image segmentation algorithm. Considering an input image where the foreground stands a man with unfixed size and its background is all sorts of complicated background, firstly we use Haar&Adaboost facial detection algorithm as a preprocessing method so as to divide the image into different sub-systems, and we get a fix-sized image of human face. Then we use GrabCut and closed-form algorithm to segment the preprocessed image and output an image which satisfies our requirements (i.e. the fixed size and fixed background). Up to now the GrabCut and closed-form algorithm has been realized, both of which have its own advantages and shortages.
