A number of global and local methods are available for the representation of face images, still no single approach is found to be suitable in most of the situations. As the information conveyed by these two feature sets, is different hence the techniques that combine the global and local features together are necessary to obtain the optimal results. In this paper, the authors have developed an approach to combine two feature sets obtained from SVD and LBP approaches. SVD approach is able to efficiently represent the global variations of face images whereas the LBP is one of the most useful descriptors to extract the local variation of face images.
