Edge is a basic feature in the field of computing vision. So to find edge saliency map is an indispensable operation for many applications on image processing. In this paper we present a fast algorithm to find edge saliency map for a natural image. The approach integrates three basic edge features: edge gradient value, edge segment length and edge density, and it works well to detect salient region boundaries and to suppress ill edges from texture. An edge saliency map can be used to image segmentation and boundaries detection. Experimental results demonstrate that our algorithm outperforms other edge saliency detection methods. Finally, our algorithm is applied on salient objects segmentation, compared with several state of-the-art salient region detection methods and the results show our work is valuable.
