A fundamental problem in image processing is image segmentation. The conventional image segmentation methods, to some extent, all suffe from the problem of inaccurate segmentation. A slightly easier and more approachable problem - interactive segmentation - has also received a lot of attentions over the years. In this paper, we propose a fast and simple interactive image segmentation technique. This segmentation process is conducted in two modules. First, the original image is pre-segmented by a low level segmentation method. Second, some portion of the object-of-interest is marked. The proposed method identifies all the similar-colored objects present in the image. In this work, color feature is used to measure the closeness between two regions and accordingly the label of the unmarked region is decided.
