This paper presents a dynamic approach to Skin Detection- to separate the skin pixels from non-skin pixels- in colored images. The static methods which use a fixed skin color model, will fail if there are illumination variations or different skin colors in an image. Because of contextual information the proposed algorithm will be less sensitive to the uncontrolled illumination conditions. In addition, the selection of discriminant features and the fusion of them and Bayesian classification increase the accuracy of the proposed method in comparison to the reference methods.
