Abstract: Image segmentation is one of the most significant ways to simplify complex images into human or machine readable form. The main purpose of image segmentation ways is to extract or segment out particular area or region of image. It can also be used to separate foreground image from the background image. Image segmentation methods for depicting images have gained a great achievements but the color image segmentation method based on statistical theory have exposed some limitation. The color image segmentation main purpose is to reduce the undesired limitations of the conventional segmentation method. Ant Colony Optimization (ACO) and Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO) are the two main methods for swarm intelligence have great potential in color image segmentation method. This paper introduces color image segmentation using the Hybrid Clustering based Ant Colony Optimization and Particle Swarm Optimization methods. The experimental result of segmentation method has been evaluated by determining the PSNR and accuracy values of the input images. The proposed HCACOPSO method is compared with the existing methods of Otsu and CPSO-FCM methods which gives better result.
