Image retrieval is one of the most exciting and fastest growing research areas in the field of multimedia technology. This paper proposes a new efficient image retrieval method that applies a weighted combination of color and texture to the wavelet transform, based on spatial-color and second order statistics, respectively. To evaluate the performance of the proposed algorithm, we assess the simulation's performance in terms of average precision and Fscore using several image databases, and perform comparative analysis with existing methods such as MPEG-7. The experimental results show that the proposed approach significantly improves the effectiveness of image retrieval. The proposed descriptor is particularly useful for multi-resolution image search and retrieval.
