face reconstruction code

The face reconstruction part was done as an afterthought..It tries to reconstruct the faces using a selected number of eigenfaces.The reconstructed images are created in a directory named reconfaces .The images named reconphiX.png etc are adjusted by adding the average image data to create the final images -named reconX.png etc.It can be seen that the more number of eigenfaces used in reconstruction,the closer are the final images to the original ones.

For an initial set of 16 images in the original face image collection,when 6 eigenfaces were used to do the reconstruction, one of the the reconstructed images is given below



Then 15 eigenfaces were used for the reconstruction and it created the following image



This reconstruction is very close to the original face image
