Content Based Image Retrieval Using Color Strings Comparison

Content Based Image Retrieval (CBIR) is a technique that enables a user to extract an image based on a query, from a database containing a large amount of images. A very fundamental issue in designing a content based image retrieval system is to select the image features that best represent the image contents in a database. In this paper, our proposed method mainly concentrated on database classification and efficient image representation. We present a method for content based image retrieval based on support vector machine classifier. In this method the feature extraction was done based on the colour string coding and string comparison. We succeed in transferring the images retrieval problem to strings comparison. Thus the computational complexity is decreases obviously. The image database used in our experiment contains 1800 colour images from Corel photo galleries.This CBIR approach has significantly increased the accuracy in obtaining results for image retrieval.
