image description I want to know the minimum and maximum range of HSV values to be kept in cvInRangeS() to get the body of mouse. Any particular method to get almost exact range?? I am using OpenCV2.4.8 and C and Visual Studio 2010.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

Cut out the mouse manually, calculate the average values for each channel over all pixels. Then do + and - 15%?

Just use code below, which will display RGB and HSV value corresponding to mouse position. Also see the HSV-ColorWheel here might be helpful.

 char window_name[30] = "HSV Segemtation";
 Mat src;

 static void onMouse( int event, int x, int y, int f, void* ){
 Mat image=src.clone();
 int B=rgb.val[0];
 int G=rgb.val[1];
 int R=rgb.val[2];

  Mat HSV;
  Mat RGB=image(Rect(x,y,1,1));
  cvtColor(RGB, HSV,CV_BGR2HSV);

    int H=hsv.val[0];
    int S=hsv.val[1];
    int V=hsv.val[2];

    char name[30];
    putText(image,name, Point(150,40) , FONT_HERSHEY_SIMPLEX, .7, Scalar(0,255,0), 2,8,false );

    putText(image,name, Point(150,80) , FONT_HERSHEY_SIMPLEX, .7, Scalar(0,255,0), 2,8,false );

    putText(image,name, Point(150,120) , FONT_HERSHEY_SIMPLEX, .7, Scalar(0,255,0), 2,8,false );

    putText(image,name, Point(25,40) , FONT_HERSHEY_SIMPLEX, .7, Scalar(0,255,0), 2,8,false );

    putText(image,name, Point(25,80) , FONT_HERSHEY_SIMPLEX, .7, Scalar(0,255,0), 2,8,false );

    putText(image,name, Point(25,120) , FONT_HERSHEY_SIMPLEX, .7, Scalar(0,255,0), 2,8,false );

    putText(image,name, Point(25,300) , FONT_HERSHEY_SIMPLEX, .7, Scalar(0,0,255), 2,8,false );

    putText(image,name, Point(25,340) , FONT_HERSHEY_SIMPLEX, .7, Scalar(0,0,255), 2,8,false );

 imshow( window_name, image );

int main(){
 src = imread("bgr.png",1);
 setMouseCallback( window_name, onMouse, 0 );

One solution would be to create two trackbars corresponding to min and max of the range. Move the trackbars around and see what values give you satisfactory result. You will probably discover a few additional things about your picture as well to get ideas on other processing needed.
