Interactive Segmentation with Intelligent Scissors

  title={Interactive Segmentation with Intelligent Scissors},
  author={Eric N. Mortensen and William A. Barrett},
  journal={Graphical Models and Image Processing},
We present a new, interactive tool called Intelligent Scissors which we use for image seg-mentation. Fully automated segmentation is an unsolved problem, while manual tracing is inaccurate and laboriously unacceptable. However, Intelligent Scissors allow objects within digital images to be extracted quickly and accurately using simple gesture motions with a mouse. When the gestured mouse position comes in proximity to an object edge, a live-wire boundary " snaps " to, and wraps around the… CONTINUE READING
