We develop a new type of statistical texture image feature, called a Local Radius Index (LRI), which can be used to quantify texture similarity based on human perception. Image similarity metrics based on LRI can be applied to image compression, identical texture retrieval and other related applications. LRI extracts texture features by using simple pixel value comparisons in space domain. Better performance can be achieved when LRI is combined with complementary texture features, e.g., Local… CONTINUE READING
