In the docs for GrowCutComponents[] there are many examples of masks, but I don't know how to make one for myself. I suppose they are using the drawing tools in some way (which I have never used), but a straightforward application of it gave this error:

Are there any examples of how to make a marker mask? Perhaps in a tutorial or in the refs for another symbol?

    $\begingroup$ Maybe you need more than one marker? Also, try to Binarize the marker image, to make sure it's not antialiased $\endgroup$ – Niki Estner Jan 11 '17 at 9:22
  • $\begingroup$ @nikie but really I'm asking about what are the actual steps of using draw tools to make them $\endgroup$ – user5601 Feb 1 '17 at 5:01

A toy example :

  • Take an image
  • draw some line on it with the Drawing Tools
  • select the whole image. There should be a orange contour line with orange handlers, like in the image below. You can do that by clicking out of the cell, then inside the cell.
  • right-click to have the contextual menu, then "Graphics Editing", then "create Mask"

I have experienced some bugs with the Drawing Tool, specially with Mathematica Version 11.2 (Windows 7 in my case). Hope you will not have to deal with them.

    $\begingroup$ I have never found information about that. Just discovered it now (!). $\endgroup$ – andre314 Jan 19 '18 at 19:18
  • $\begingroup$ This is great! I was also wondering about doing it programatically though... any thoughts on that? $\endgroup$ – user5601 Jan 20 '18 at 1:00
