Abstract -
Region growing is a simple region-based image segmentation method. It is also classified as a pixel-based image segmentation method since it involves the selection of initial seed points of images. It also groups the pixels in whole image into sub regions (i.e. set to sub sets). This paper describes the various schemes of segmentation based visual cryptography and clear state that no proper method / schemes / techniques are used for proper type of images. In this paper, we have analyzed the region growing based image segmentation and the seeded growing area , but the quality of image is totally depend upon the way of selecting the seed i.e. automatically and manual way. As the seeded region growing techniques is gaining more popularity in practical day by day especially in medical images.
