In this paper, we propose methods to extract texture features from multispectral skin images. We first describe the acquisition protocol and corrections we applied on multispectral skin images. In the framework of a cosmetology application, a skin morphological texture evaluation is then proposed using either multivariate approach on multispectral dataset or marginal on a dataset whose dimensionality has been reduced by a multivariate analysis based on PCA.
