In this paper, the authors present a texture descriptor algorithm called invariant features of local textures (IFLT). IFLT generates scale, rotation and (essentially) illumination invariant descriptors from a small neighbourhood of pixels around a centre pixel or a texture patch. Texture classification experiments were carried out on the Brodatz, Outex and KTH-TIPS2 databases. Demonstrated texture classification accuracy exceeds the previously published state of the art at a significantly lower computational cost. Experiments also suggests that IFLT descriptors are in a sense intuitive texture descriptors.
