Searching of Images Based on Content Using Blobs


Now a day’s image searching is still a challenging problem in content based image retrieval (CBIR) system. Most system operates on all images without pre-sorting the images. The image search result contains many unrelated image. The aim of this research is to propose a new method for content based image indexing and research based on blobs feature extraction and existing edges in the image and classification of image to different type and to search image which are similar the given research.
