Abstract: The visual properties of images are color, shape and texture etc. By using these properties it is possible to interactively find any kind of image from the huge database of images. Color and texture are two important visual features in order to find an image. And the technique used for this is Content Based Image Retrieval (CBIR). Searching of images from a huge database is becoming a serious problem in data management field. The Traditional method i.e. text based method of searching does not meet the requirements of user. The system content Based Image Retrieval involves relevant searching of images from the query image based on extracted features.
