Comparsion of Feature Extraction Methods for Finding Similar Images
In this paper, we compare four methods of feature extraction for finding similar images. We created our own dataset which consists of 34500 colour images of various types of footwear and other accessories. We describe the methods that we experimented with and present results achieved with all of them. We presented the results to 23 people who then rated the performance of these methods. The best–rated method is selected for further research.
