Segmentation in image processing refers to the process of partitioning a digital image into multiple segments. This paper makes an attempt to segment the Comic images for extraction the text. Segmentation of comic images into extract the text is a challenging task primarily because of complexity of the structural Features like color, shape and texture. In this paper we proposed a color based comic image segmentation for extraction of text using Modify Fuzzy Possiblistic C-Means Clustering Algorithm has been tested on different images and obtained better performance than many of the existing methods.
