Hi Alek and welcome to Retouch Pro. I took your photo and used the Stylize/Find Edges Filter. Then I used Image/Adjustment/Threshold to arrive at what I've posted.

In your first post you can obtain the first watershed by using the Image/Adjustments/Invert command in photoshop

I would invert and use levels to get the 'watershed'.

Thanks for your interest.
Which software did you use?
Is there any way to remove those black signs that are in the interior of the objects? In other words i only wish the outline of the object to be shown.

P.S. Sorry for my terrible English!!!

Adobe Streamline or Adobe Illustrator might work.

Illustrator is a big, expensive and complicated program,so if you only want something simple, Streamline should work for this and (if you know photoshop) you can learn it in a couple hours.

if all you want is single line outlines, then this is not going to be possible without quite a bit of hand work. the edges just dont come out to single line outlines like in your original desired work. even with strong contrasts, inverting, levels, curves and so on, it just wont come out the way you show you want without doing some, or a lot, of hand work. you could prep the image by hand to do this, or you could draw the lines in you want after some filtering, but the closest i could get was this:

and as you can see, i can get it down to lines, but not single line outlines.

craig

edit: actually, i shld never say never. i tend to eat too many words when i do that you might try this in a vector image mode and have better luck.

Hi Alek
Welcome to RetouchPro

The problem is that most of the outline is on the dark areas but there are some lines on the light areas. There is no automatic way to do this. In my picture I have isolated the dark areas but the rest would have to be drawn by hand.

I don’t know what these samples are but the watersed pictures look like a contour map rather than a density map.

Thanks everybody for your advises. I tried to work most of them and i came to some conclusions. But let me expain you what i wish to do (i attach a new foto that is the one i wish to transform). In this foto you can see some pieces of rock. I wish each one of them to have a solid (uniform) color in its interior. As i am going to use this foto for a software that measures the size of each piece, i wish each of them to be (to the extend that something like this can be accompished) easily separated from those that surround it (i understand that is something very difficult).
Once again thanks for your interest.

Looking forward for your answers.............

Usually such tasks are easier handled by image processing applications like ImageJ (http://rsb.info.nih.gov/ij/), NIH Image (http://rsb.info.nih.gov/nih-image/), AstraImage (www.astraimage.com) etc. I have seen many plugins and commands catering to such specific needs.
