The color of the digital images is one of the most important components of the image processing research area. In many applications such as image segmentation, analysis, compression and transition, it is preferable to reduce the colors as much as possible. In this paper, a color clustering technique which is the combination of a neural network and a fuzzy algorithm is proposed. Initially, the Kohonen Self Organized Featured Map (KSOFM) is applied to the original image. Then, the KSOFM results are fed to the Gustafson-Kessel (GK) fuzzy clustering algorithm as starting values. Finally, the output classes of GK algorithm define the numbers of colors of which the image will be reduced.
