How to extract an object from an image

22 views (last 30 days)
I've got this code to extract a single cashew from a image containing multiple cashews. I need the extracted image to be RGB as well.
cashew_RGB = imread('White Wholes 180.jpg');
cashew_BW = img_BW(cashew_RGB);
cashew_stats = regionprops(bwlabel(cashew_BW),'BoundingBox');
cashew_single = imcrop(cashew_RGB,cashew_stats(i).BoundingBox);
I have attached the image and the user-defined function 'img_BW' which converts RGB image to black and white If you execute the code you'll find that the extracted cashew image has an invasion from the neighboring cashew. Is there any way to extract the cashew without such invasions? Thanks for your help!

You can't use the bounding box or else you may have incursions from another blob that juts into the bounding box. You have to use either PixelList from regionprops, or (easier) use ismember() with the blob you want to extract:
thisBlob = ismember(labeledImage, blobIndexToExtract) > 0;

first, convert to gray, by rgb2gray(), then find the perfect threshold of the region from the image matrix. it can be aslo done in RGB image if you knew the R:G:B ration of the threshold.
lastly, past the bounded area in a mask, or extract the partcular threshold
