Abstract

We have proposed a method for clipping a rectangular region from an image by minimizing a weighted intersection of two color histograms that are constructed with pixels inside and outside the rectangular region. We propose a method for detecting salient regions which is based on two color histograms obtained by the clipping. We experimentally compared our method with the latest method by Achanta et al., and the results show that salient regions can be detected more clearly with our method.
