Image segmentation is the process of assigning a label to every pixel in an image such that pixels with the same label share certain characteristics. In discontinuity based approach images are partitioned on the basis of abrupt changes in intensity, such as edge detection, line detection and point detection. In this paper we are a multilevel masking based image segmentation technique which will analyze the image information more accurately.
