AbstractFeature detection in color images frequently consists in image conversion from color to grayscale and then application of one of many known grayscale detectors. This approach has a few disadvantages: some features become indistinguishable in grayscale and features ordering based on grayscale detector response do not accord with features order of importance from human’s perception point of view. In this paper the method for direct detection of blobs in color images is proposed. The proposed algorithm is based on scale space approach and estimates blobs sizes. Two modifications of the proposed method are given and compared.
