What happened to the Color Thresholder App in the Image Processing Toolbox?

5 views (last 30 days)
I'm trying to do color thresholding on HSV and LAB images. I read online that there is a Color Thresholder App, but I have been unable to find/download it. Has it been removed? Or am I looking in the wrong place?

That's Brett's tool. See http://www.mathworks.com/matlabcentral/fileexchange/38484-segmenttool-an-interactive-gui-for-segmenting-images Though he works for the Mathworks, that tool was never part of the Image Processing Toolbox, though maybe it should be.

If you're going to do it based on color, see my color segmentation demos in my File Exchange http://www.mathworks.com/matlabcentral/fileexchange/?term=authorid%3A31862
Of course there are other criteria you'll need to apply such as it's round and moving, but even there you'll have problems. What if the boundary is not round because it's obscured by a player's hand? What if the ball is not moving? What if there's the same color in the stands? What if the ball is not visible at all?

The colorThresholder is an R2014a feature of the Image Processing Toolbox. You will need the newest release which came out a week ago to use this feature.
