Segmentation of Lenna

(a) Original Image (b) First split by a quantization algorithm
(c) merge step applied on (b) (d) Selection of the region encoding the blue plummet and the hairs
(e) Split of the region selected in (d): Separation of the plumet from the hairs. (f) Further refinement of the separation between the blue plummet and the bacground located on the top of it.
(g) First split of the region located on the top of the hat (h) Second split and closure of the border of the hat
(i) Selection of the face (j) First split of the face
(k)Removal of some wrong boundaries (l) Further split of the merge
(m) Final Segmentation after the removal of all non pertinent boundaries
