    The existing face sketch-photo synthesis methods trend to lose some vital details more or less. In this paper, we propose a novel sketch-photo synthesis approach based on support vector regression (SVR) to handle this difficulty. First, we utilize an existing method to acquire the initial estimate of the synthesized image. Then, the final synthesized image is obtained by combining the initial estimate and the SVR based high frequency information together to further enhance the quality of synthesized image. Experimental results on the benchmark database and our new constructed database demonstrate that the proposed method can achieve significant improvement on perceptual quality. Moreover, the synthesized face images can obtain higher recognition rate when used in retrieval system.
