Abstract—This paper proposes a novel face super-resolution reconstruction (hallucination) technique, color face images reconstruction of RGB space with an error regression model in multi-linear principal component analysis (MPCA). From hallucination framework, many color face images are explained in RGB space. Then, they can be naturally described as tensors or multi-linear arrays. In this way, the error regression analysis is used to find the error estimation which can be obtained from the existing LR in tensor space. The framework consists of learning and hallucinating process. In learning process is from the mistakes in reconstruct face images of the training dataset by MPCA, then finding the relationship between input and error by regression analysis. In hallucinating process uses normal method by back-projection of MPCA, after that the result is corrected with the error estimation. In this contribution we show that our hallucination technique can be suitable for color face images both in RGB space. By using the MPCA subspace with error regression model, we can generate photorealistic color face images. Our approach is demonstrated by extensive experiments with high-quality hallucinated color faces. In addition, our experiments on face images from FERET database validate our algorithm
