The rapid progress in digital image capture and computer processing power has provided new opportunities for the analysis and synthesis of facial shape and appearance. New algorithms have been developed to exploit these improvements and have found applications in health, security and forensics. In this chapter some of the main techniques that have been developed to capture, model and process facial image data are reviewed.
