lets assume that this is the code i used to identify the boundary. I want display the selected boundary in new window else convert this to mask. is it possible.. some one please help me
I = imread('F:\project_matlab\dataset\002.jpg');
BW = im2bw(I, graythresh(I));
[B,L] = bwboundaries(BW,'noholes');
imshow(label2rgb(L, @jet, [.5 .5 .5]))
hold on
for k = 1:length(B)
boundary = B{k};
plot(boundary(:,2), boundary(:,1), 'w', 'LineWidth', 2)

b=bwboundaries(BW); % BW being your binary image
for i = 1:length(b)
for j = 1:length(b{i})
ind = b{i}(j,:);


dear; actually i want extract image from this image.
BW = imfill(BW , 'holes') % will give you desired mask

No need to get boundaries on that image. Simply threshold. The it depends on what you mean by "extract". What does that mean to you? To you mean crop? Do you want the white bar along the bottom of the image also to be included? What about the white torn edge? It can go from simple to complex depending on exactly what you want to do and what kind of images the algorithm can be expected to encounter.
