The INFace (Illumination Normalization techniques for robust Face recognition) toolbox v2.0 is a collection of Matlab functions and scripts intended to help researchers working in the field of face recognition. The toolbox was produced as a byproduct of my research work and is freely available for download.

The INface toolbox v2.0 includes implementations of the following photometric normalization techniques: the single-scale-retinex algorithm, the multi-scale-retinex algorithm, the single-scale self quotient image, the multi-scale self quotient image, the homomorphic-filtering-based normalization technique, a wavelet-based normalization technique, a wevelet-denoising-based normalization technique, the isotropic diffusion-based normalization technique, the anisotropic-diffusion-based normalization technique, the non-local means-based normalization technique, the adaptive non-local-means-based normalization technique, the DCT-based normalization technique, a normalization technique based on steerable filters, a modified version of the anisotropic diffusion-based normalization technique, the Gradientfaces approach, the Weberfaces approach, the multi-scale Weberfaces approach, the Tan and Triggs normalization technique and the large and small scale features normalization technique.

In addition to the listed techniques there are also a number of histogram manipulation functions included in the toolbox, which can be useful for the task of illumination invariant face recognition.
