Image segmentation

Alright kiddo, have you ever played with a puzzle and tried to put the pieces together to make a bigger picture? That's kind of like what image segmentation is.

When we talk about segmentation, it means that we want to split up an image into different parts or areas. It's like cutting up a pizza into slices.

So when we use image segmentation, we can tell a computer to look at a picture and split it up into different sections. This is really helpful when we want to analyze or edit specific parts of an image.

For example, let's say we have a picture of a cat. Image segmentation can help us split up the picture into different parts like the ears, eyes, nose, and fur. This can be really helpful if we want to only edit the eyes, or only look at the fur texture.

So, image segmentation is like splitting up a picture into smaller parts to help us analyze or work with specific sections of an image. Hope that helps!
