The following article presents an approach for interactive foreground extraction in still images that is currently being integrated into the GIMP. The presented approach has been derived from color signatures, a technique originating from image retrieval. The article explains the algorithm and presents some benchmark results to show the improvements in speed and accuracy compared to state of the art solutions. The article also describes how the algorithm can easily be adapted for video segmentation tasks.
