The retrieval of an image can be done by extracting the local texture information. The procedure involves the calculation of patterns of texture present in an image. Local binary patterns became the first of its kind in which the gray value of a pixel in the middle position is compared with all of its surrounding pixels. The patterns of the texture obtained are converted into a histogram and the same becomes a feature vector in the process of comparison and subsequent retrieval process. One among several modifications to LBP was directional extrema patterns, which employs a technique of deriving the data by comparison of the pixel at the middle with two immediate pixels in four possible directions. To increase the performance further, an integrated approach is proposed for a CBIR system in which CDLEP is integrated with Gabor filters. The precision and recall values are found to decide the performance of the proposed framework.
