The biometrics is a powerful tool to authenticate a person for multiple applications. The face recognition is better biometrics compared to other biometric traits as the image can be captured without the knowledge and cooperation of a person. In this paper, the authors propose Discrete Wavelet Transform and FFT based feature extraction for Face recognition system. The face databases ORL and JAFFE are considered. The face images of JAFFE database are resized to 11292 uniform dimensions. The features of face are generated using haar wavelet family by considering approximation band only.
