Nice work Thumbs Up | :thumbsup:

Following up on a reply I posted a week or so ago to your original post:

Here is a hand-drawn image of rectangles and circles done by my pet arthritic hamster - pet hamster's drawing of circles and rectangles[^] and here is the result of a weekend or so of work done on detecting rectangles and circles - Computer generated guess of rectangles and circles[^]

What I am trying to do is much simpler than your examples - for my blob detection I however don't rely on math(that spelling will annoy a few people Poke tongue | ;-P ) but, to put it simply, I use a method where I scan the page several times looking for how close edges are to each other in order to distinguish blobs.

For circle detection I draw a box around the blobs and then cut off each of the four corners, of the boxes, with a triangle and the code determines how many pixels are within each triangle - hamster's drawing with detected blobs in rectangles with triagles at edges[^].

Then using a pre-determined sensitivity the code guesses at what is a circle and what is a rectangle.

One recommended way of detecting circles is to measure how close the borders are to the centre of the blob, however I found that with my arthritic hamster's circles being so poor, in some cases circles were being detected as rectangles - my usual go for a walk and think of how to solve the problem led to the triangle solution.
