A content-based image retrieval system with query image classification prior to retrieving procedure is proposed. Query image is compared to representative patterns of image classes, not to all images from database, accelerating thus initial retrieving step. Such procedure is possible when images from database are grouped into classes with similar content. Classification is performed using minor component (MC) analysis. Since it is expectable that MCs mainly depend on image details, not on an image background, this approach seems to be more efficient than classic CBIR. Minor components may be calculated by using single-layer neural network. The efficiency of proposed system is tested over images from Corel dataset
