Automatic salient region detection in an image is useful for image compression, image cropping for resizing on smaller displays, object recognition and tracking. In this paper casebased reasoning is used to make a system learn the relevant attributes of a salient region, based on global and local color contrast. CIELab colorspace is used as it is perceptually uniform and matches the human visual perception. The parameters used are background colors at the boundary, color distance, spatial
