A new parallel binary image shrinking algorithm that can be considered as an improvement of Levialdi's (1972) parallel shrinking algorithm and can be used in many image labeling algorithms as a basic operation in order to reduce the storage requirements for local memory and speed up the labeling process is presented. This new parallel shrinking algorithm shrinks an n×n binary image to an image with no black pixels in O(n) parallel steps with a multiplicative constant of 1.5, preserving the 8-connectivity in the shrinking process
