We propose a deformable model for manually initialized segmentation of images, which may contain both textured and non-textured regions. Image segments and segment boundaries are represented using a deformable triangle mesh, providing all advantages of an explicit geometry representation, but allowing for adaptive topology. Deformation forces are computed using a probabilistic model of local self-similarity, based on clustering of image patches. Both our curve representation and our similarity model naturally support multi-label segmentation. We demonstrate the properties of our approach on a number of natural color images as well as composed textured images.
