In this paper, we proposed a simple yet effective image binarization method to work with various kinds of images, such as images with the color bleeding characters, or with non-uniform background exposed to poor ambient light, and so forth. Our approach is based on a hybrid color quantization process, which adaptively takes the global and local image characteristics into account; therefore, it can deal with complex images. The experiment result shows that our proposed hybrid method outperforms the literature methods.
