Abstract: Image segmentation is one of the challenging tasks in image processing. This paper introduces a novel method for image segmentation based on image analogy principle. First, contours of source image are located using 14 pairs of stereo patches. Next, elementary regions, considered as areas between contours located using to successive pairs of patches. Finally, we define border's stability of neighbouring regions which constitutes the measure for regions merging. Three scales are defined giving three segmentations at three resolutions (low, intermediate and high). Experiments conducted on Wiezmann dataset, the obtained results are presented and compared to the state-of-the-art.
