We investigate facial expression recognition (FER) based on image appearance. FER is performed using state-of-the-art classification approaches. Different approaches to preprocess face images are investigated. First, region-of-interest (ROI) images are obtained by extracting the facial ROI from raw images. FER of ROI images is used as the benchmark and compared with the FER of difference images. Difference images are obtained by computing the difference between the ROI images of neutral and peak facial expressions. FER is also evaluated for images which are obtained by applying the Local binary pattern (LBP) operator to ROI images. Further, we investigate different contrast enhancement operators to preprocess images, namely, histogram equalization (HE) approach and a brightness preserving approach for histogram equalization. The classification experiments are performed for a convolutional neural network (CNN) and a pre-trained deep learning model. All experiments are performed on three public face databases, namely, Cohn–Kanade (CK[Formula: see text]), JAFFE and FACES.
