This paper proposes to synthesize posed facial images from two parameters for the pose. This parameterization makes the representation, storage, and transmission of face images effective. Because variations of face images show a complicated nonlinear manifold in high-dimensional data space, we use an LLE (Locally Linear Embedding) technique for a good representation of face images. And we apply a snake model to estimate face feature values in the reduced feature space that corresponds to a specific pose parameter. Finally, a synthetic face image is obtained from an interpolation of several neighboring face images. Experimental results show that the proposed method creates an accurate and consistent synthetic face images with respect to changes of pose.
