Image processing is a technique to transform an image into digital form and implement some operations on it; in order to acquire an improved image or to abstract some useful information from it. It is a kind of signal exemption in which input is image, like video frame or photograph and output may be image or characteristics related with that image. Segmentation partitions an image into separate regions comprising each pixel with similar attributes. To be significant and useful for image analysis and clarification, the regions should powerfully relate to depicted objects or features of interest. Meaningful segmentation is the first step from low-level image processing converting a grey scale or color image into one or more other images to high-level image depiction in terms of objects, features, and scenes. The achievement of image analysis depends on reliability of segmentation, but an exact partitioning of an image is mostly a very challenging problem.
