§ createSuperpixelLSC()

Ptr<SuperpixelLSC> cv::ximgproc::createSuperpixelLSC ( InputArray  image,
int  region_size = 10,
float  ratio = 0.075f 
)

Class implementing the LSC (Linear Spectral Clustering) superpixels.

Parameters
imageImage to segment
region_sizeChooses an average superpixel size measured in pixels
ratioChooses the enforcement of superpixel compactness factor of superpixel

The function initializes a SuperpixelLSC object for the input image. It sets the parameters of superpixel algorithm, which are: region_size and ruler. It preallocate some buffers for future computing iterations over the given image. An example of LSC is ilustrated in the following picture. For enanched results it is recommended for color images to preprocess image with little gaussian blur with a small 3 x 3 kernel and additional conversion into CieLAB color space.

§ createSuperpixelSEEDS()

Ptr<SuperpixelSEEDS> cv::ximgproc::createSuperpixelSEEDS ( int  image_width,
int  image_height,
int  image_channels,
int  num_superpixels,
int  num_levels,
int  prior = 2,
int  histogram_bins = 5,
bool  double_step = false 
)

Initializes a SuperpixelSEEDS object.

Parameters
image_widthImage width.
image_heightImage height.
image_channelsNumber of channels of the image.
num_superpixelsDesired number of superpixels. Note that the actual number may be smaller due to restrictions (depending on the image size and num_levels). Use getNumberOfSuperpixels() to get the actual number.
num_levelsNumber of block levels. The more levels, the more accurate is the segmentation, but needs more memory and CPU time.
priorenable 3x3 shape smoothing term if >0. A larger value leads to smoother shapes. prior must be in the range [0, 5].
histogram_binsNumber of histogram bins.
double_stepIf true, iterate each block level twice for higher accuracy.

The function initializes a SuperpixelSEEDS object for the input image. It stores the parameters of the image: image_width, image_height and image_channels. It also sets the parameters of the SEEDS superpixel algorithm, which are: num_superpixels, num_levels, use_prior, histogram_bins and double_step.

The number of levels in num_levels defines the amount of block levels that the algorithm use in the optimization. The initialization is a grid, in which the superpixels are equally distributed through the width and the height of the image. The larger blocks correspond to the superpixel size, and the levels with smaller blocks are formed by dividing the larger blocks into 2 x 2 blocks of pixels, recursively until the smaller block level. An example of initialization of 4 block levels is illustrated in the following figure.

§ createSuperpixelSLIC()

Ptr<SuperpixelSLIC> cv::ximgproc::createSuperpixelSLIC ( InputArray  image,
int  algorithm = SLICO,
int  region_size = 10,
float  ruler = 10.0f 
)

Initialize a SuperpixelSLIC object.

Parameters
imageImage to segment
algorithmChooses the algorithm variant to use: SLIC segments image using a desired region_size, and in addition SLICO will optimize using adaptive compactness factor, while MSLIC will optimize using manifold methods resulting in more content-sensitive superpixels.
region_sizeChooses an average superpixel size measured in pixels
rulerChooses the enforcement of superpixel smoothness factor of superpixel

The function initializes a SuperpixelSLIC object for the input image. It sets the parameters of choosed superpixel algorithm, which are: region_size and ruler. It preallocate some buffers for future computing iterations over the given image. For enanched results it is recommended for color images to preprocess image with little gaussian blur using a small 3 x 3 kernel and additional conversion into CieLAB color space. An example of SLIC versus SLICO and MSLIC is ilustrated in the following picture.
