Abstract

Image low-level information, such as color, texture, and shape, were generally dealt with separately and combined together gruffly. Their image-describing effect in image retrieval was weakened. This paper determines and extracts one group of texture elements from images to mainly express the image texture information and, during this procedure, the quantized HSV color information is added to develop the feature, Color Layer-Based Texture Elements Histogram (CLBTEH). Furthermore, Color Fuzzy Correlogram (CFC) is put forward and employed for further extraction of color features. The performance of the proposed approach is evaluated on different image databases, including Corel-1k, Corel-10k, and USPTex1.0, and it was found that the experimental results of the proposed approach are encouraging in comparison with similar algorithms.
