A relative entropy based approach to image thresholding was proposed recently by Chang et al. They demonstrated that this method is successful for image thresholding. Relative entropy is a member of the class of Ali-Silvey distance measures. In this paper we generalize the relative entropy based approach and present image thresholding algorithms based on the class of Ali-Silvey distance measures. A number of members of this class are selected and used for implementation in image thresholding algorithms. Performance is evaluated by applying these algorithms to several images and comparing them to a few histogram based thresholding methods.
