This paper presents a new technique based on anisotropic diffu-sion for segmenting color images. This operation is accomplished through two independent anisotropic diffusion processes: one in-volving only the chromatic information, conveniently embedded in a complex function, and the other affecting the lightness informa-tion. The results of the two diffusions are separately segmented and their combination allows the color image to be eventually par-titioned. We report on some experimental results verifying the ef-fectiveness of such a technique.
