This face database was created by the Tarrlab at Brown University (Tarrlab is now at Carnegie Mellon).
This database includes multiple images for over 200 individuals of many different races with consistent lighting, multiple views, real emotions, and disguises (and some participants returned for a second session several weeks later with a haircut, or a new beard, etc.).
This is the final Release (3.0). The resolution of these images is as good as it gets given that we used a standard resolution video camera (HD video was too expensive at the time). We do have the movies as mpeg files if you want them. Please contact us and we can arrange for you to send us or buy a hard drive, which we can populate with the video and send to you (FYI, the videos come to about 160 GB).
Note that the face-place archives are compressed in .zip format, which should be decompressable in almost any computing environment (even Windows!); the images themselves are in jpeg format, 250x250 72 dpi 24 bit color.
