This paper deals with a novel approach for intellectual Image Retrieval (IIR) based on image content analysis using Artificial Neural Network. The Multilayer Back Propagation Feed Forward algorithm is proposed for interactive image retrieval, which takes query by image as an input and retrieves the most relevant images from the image dataset. The content based semantic features are extracted for around 500 images from image corpus and applied for training of the Neural Network. The outcome of the rigorous experimentations reveals that application of ANN for IIR enhances the effectiveness of the performance of image retrieval.
