We present an efficient algorithm using a region-based texture feature for the extraction of texture regions. The key idea of this algorithm is to use the variations of local correlation coefficients (LCCs) according to different orientations to classify texture and shade regions. Experimental results show that the proposed feature suitably extracts the regions that appear visually as texture regions.
