In this paper, we propose an intelligent object extraction algorithm based on foreground/background classification. The proposed algorithm can offer the users more friendly interface for object extraction from image without unnecessary steps. After the interactive steps from user (marking the foreground and background parts), the wanted object is extracted from the background automatically. The proposed algorithm processes the input image by watershed to produce the regions. Then, the regions are labeled after marking parts of regions. We also introduce an implementation of hierarchical queues to store the unlabeled regions. The classification of foreground and background will generate the final image with selected object. In our experimental results, the proposed algorithm provides the output image with high efficiency. The wanted object is generated after user marking the foreground and background parts less than one second. In addition, the application of this work also can be used in image synthesis or object removal in other fields of image processing.
