I'm trying to detect and extract a rectangular area of an image. The image is a graph with some parameters that are always contained inside a rectangle. The graph consists of curves and axes in black on a white background. The rectangle is a box consisting of black lines and it contains black text on a white background. I need to extract the box alone so I can run it through an OCR process to convert the key parameters inside the rectangle into text for other purposes.
Can anyone suggest a method, script or add-on for LiveCode that will help me extract a rectangle from its surrounding image?
