In this paper, we propose a segmentation method of color images with being rid of oversegmentation. Many conventional segmentation methods assign one region to each gathering of pixels which have similar property. But, these methods tend to oversegment by the optical influences. Besides, they do not use the edge information, therefore the edge is not always selected to the boundary. In this study, we propose a segmentation method of color images with being rid of oversegmentation. Our method uses not only the pixel's property but also the information of regions' contour. It consists of the first segmentation process and the region combining process. First, the given image is segmented in consideration of the edge information. Next, the obtained regions are combined according to pixels' property and regions' contour
