It is well known that object symmetry is an important component in determining
human focus of attention. Earlier, we have proposed a new method, based
on symmetry in gray level images, for object isolation and segmentation
in complex images and a real-time implementation has also been developed
and tested. We have added to this analysis the two additional features
of color and texture. Both region and edge analysis are used to compute
a graph description of the important and salient objects in the scene.
The user is able to interactively select a desired combination of perceptual
variables to control which salient objects will be retrieved.
