I want to determine color of character So I use findContour to find all contour of character in my image and Finally I want to determine color of the contour. Can you suggest me some way to do that? Thanks.

hmm, a contour is just a vector<Point> , so you could query the underlying pixel for each Point like: img.at<Vec3b>(contour[i]) .

unfortunately, those values won't be the same for each Point, a contour (being the 'outside' of something) usually does not have a 'single' colour.

are you looking for the colour of the inside of a contour ?

you could try to find it's center (e.g. from moments()) , and query the pixel value there.

That's right. Unfortunately, a contour usually does not have a single contour. Can you suggest me some way to do that?

YES. inside a contour. at stroke width not at overlap contour.

Nope. Center returns color of background not color of word
