Paper Abstract

We present a new color image segmentation method that combined texture measures and the JSEG (J measure based JSEGmentation) algorithm. In particular, two major contributions are set forth in this paper. (1) The two measures defined in JSEG and the Laws texture energy is discussed respectively and then we find that the over-segmentation problem of JSEG could be attributed partly to the absence of color discontinuity in the J measure. (2) A new measure is proposed by integrating the Laws texture energy measures into the J measure, on which our segmentation method is based. The new segmentation method taking account of both textural homogeneity and color discontinuity in local regions can be used to detect proper edges at the boundaries of shadows and highlights. Performance improvement due to the proposed modification was demonstrated on a variety of real color images.
