Along with the progress of imaging modality and the wide utility of digital images (including video) in various fields, many potential content producers have emerged, and many image databases have been built. Because images require large amounts of storage space and processing time, how to quickly and efficiently access and manage these large, both in the sense of information contents and data volume, databases has become an urgent problem. The research solution for this problem, using content-based image retrieval (CBIR) techniques, was initiated in the last decade (Kato, 1992). An international standard for multimedia content descriptions, MPEG-7, was formed in 2001 (MPEG). With the advantages of comprehensive descriptions of image contents and consistence to human visual perception, research in this direction is considered as one of the hottest research points in the new century (Castelli, 2002; Zhang, 2003; Deb, 2004).
