hi ThievingSix;

with that .bmp, It can connect both lines, but if I will use a graphic bmp file pictures, why it can't

I'll close this post after this and answer;
Actually I'm detecting the persons eye with clWhite to clWhite, but didn't work.
Any suggestion?

Connecting an eye to an eye is much more complicated than connecting two colors on a white background.

First, this doesn't have a color threshold. The white of a persons eye won't always be clWhite (#FFFFFF). .

Second this doesn't have a range threshold either. So if it see's two white pixels next to each other it will connect those two.

The ideal solution is to find a face detection library.

But for something more simple targeting the  two issues above would be:

1) http://www.delphigroups.info/2/7/299790.html - Color Threshold
2) If you're scanning the image line by line (like the function in the last post) on a face, you'll notice color --> white --> color --> black --> color --> white --> color --> white --> color --> black --> color --> white --> color. In this fashion you would detect this sequence in the scanline over the entire image width. You would mark the scanline and if you notice a group of scanlines that are more marked than not you know where the eye's are.
