Gives a basic idea and its fundamental algorithms of the visual interface for image database systems. The QVE (Query by Visual Example) accepts a sketch roughly drawn by a user to retrieve the original image and the similar images. The system evaluates the similarity between the rough sketch, i.e. a visual example, and each of the image data in the database automatically. The QVE interface is implemented and examined on an experimental electronic art gallery called ART MUSEUM. This paper also gives some experimental results and a current evaluation. The algorithms are quite effective for content based image retrieval
