Digital cameras are gaining in popularity, and not only experts in image analysis, but also the average users, show a growing interest in image processing. Many different kinds of software for image processing offer tools for object selection, or segmentation, but most of them require expertise knowledge, or leave too little freedom in expressing the desired segmentation. This paper presents an easy to use tool for object segmentation in color images. The amount of user interaction is minimized, and no tuning parameters are needed. The method is based on the watershed segmentation algorithm, combined with seeding information given by the user, and color space projections for optimized object edge detection. The presented method can successfully segment objects in most types of color images.
