In this study we try to detect anthropometric features and estimate age from facial images. We designed a neural network and trained it for face detection. In order to locate the facial features we calculate the vertical and horizontal projections and search them for minimums and maximums. Later we calculate some geometrical ratios and differences which are used for age estimation. Experimental results show that our algorithm can detect the face and facial features successfully.
