Summary Color models are widely used in image recognition because they represent significant information. On the other hand, texture analysis techniques have been extensively used for facial feature extraction. In this paper; we extract discriminative features related to facial attributes by utilizing different color models and texture analysis techniques. Specifically, we propose novel methods for texture analysis to improve classification performance of race and gender. The proposed methods for texture analysis are based on Local Binary Pattern and its derivatives. These texture analysis methods are evaluated for six color models (hue, saturation and intensity value (HSV); L*a*b*; RGB; YCbCr; YIQ; YUV) to investigate the effect of each color model. Further, we configure two combinations of color channels to represent color information suitable for gender and race classification of face images. We perform experiments on publicly available face databases. Experimental results show that the proposed approaches are effective for the classification of gender and race.
