In this paper, we propose a new concept to integrate the conventional image segmentation techniques in order to accomplish the reasonable segmentation results. First, we develop an automatic seed selection algorithm using histogram for both scale and color vector. And the luminance and chrominance are utilized in the image as a guidance to optimize the region growing and region merging. Then we explore the multi-threshold concept to generate plentiful local entropies for reasonable edge detection. Finally, for texture regions elimination, the region distribution and the global edge information are employed to identify the region with texture characterization to obtain segmentation results. In the experiment, our new technique will show more accuracy of segmentation and region classification than proposed techniques.
