Abstract
Image segmentation is required to be studied in detail some particular features (areas of interest) of a digital image. It forms an important and exigent part of image processing and requires an exhaustive and robust search technique for its implementation. In the present work we have studied working of image thresholding based on genetic algorithm. The proposed variant in this paper is tested on a set of images and the results are compared with original Otsu method.
