In the field of computer vision and image processing CBIR (Content based image retrieval) system become an active research area. The CBIR technique involves feature extraction based on image features (like color, shape and texture) and defining rules for comparing image. A classifier is also used by authors for image classification. For this purpose an image database taken from James Z. Wang research group website is used by many authors. Due to enormous increase in the size of database traditional methods of image retrieval by using keywords does not provide accurate result. Thus the concept of CBIR system is emerged. In last couple of years many method of feature extraction is developed but since now researcher are not able to develop a system which has gained high accuracy of human visual perception in distinguishing pictures. Therefore earlier researchers have concentrated to increase the retrieval accuracy of CBIR system by using different combination of features. The objective of this paper is to present review on a CBIR technique which combined four kinds of features set including every kind of feature for developing feature vector. Color based features (histogram), statistical features (mean, median and standard deviation), spatial features (Gabor feature and wavelet features) and texture features (GLCM) is used for forming feature vector. A SVM classifier is used with CBIR system to increase retrieval accuracy. SVM (support vector machine) is a machine learning classifier which provides good classification accuracy.

Keywords: CBIR, SVM, NN, GLCM, HSV Color space, Euclidean distance matrix.
