In this paper the face recognition system based on the shape information extracted with the Active Shape Model is presented. Three different classification approaches have been used: the Normal Bayes Classifier, the Type 1 Linear Support Vector Machine (LSVM) and the type 2 LSVM with a soft margin. The influence of the shape extraction algorithm parameters on the classification efficiency has been investigated. The experiments were conducted on a set of 3300 images of 100 people which ensures the statistical significance of the obtained results.
