Luxand FaceCrop SDK is face detection software that greatly optimizes and automates the process of creating professional-looking, passport-like photos from original images of any type. Regardless of the quality, size, or aspect ratio of the original image, the software can produce a good quality avatar very quickly, cutting the image of a human face from any original image. The process is a simple, single-call function that makes the process of face detection far more efficient and faster than performing the same task manually. This gives developers of sites such as social networking and dating portals a faster and easier method of getting the images that they need. With support for many different programming languages and formats, Luxand FaceCrop SDK is both versatile and effective, producing the highest quality images possible regardless of the quality and format of the original image.
