A NEW APPROACH FOR RETRIEVAL OF NATURAL IMAGES

Mislav Grgič - Sonja Grgič - Mohammed Ghanbari

   The field of image retrieval is an active research area, particularly under the new MPEG-7 multimedia standard. According to anticipated MPEG-7 visual descriptors, image parameters that were obtained using multiscale decomposition with Gabor filters can be used for retrieval of images of similar textures. This approach has been used for texture image retrieval but we used it for the retrieval of natural images, which is a more real case for the end-user. We show that the performance of this method can be enhanced if the parameters are defined on the subimage level and then performing intersection between retrieval results.

Keywords: image retrieval, image features, MPEG-7, Gabor filters
