The year 1990 is the witness of an explosion of wavelet-based methods in the field of Image Processing. The rapid expansion of the Internet and the wide use of digital data have increased the need for both efficient image database creation and retrieval procedure. The challenge in image retrieval is to develop methods that can capture the important characteristics of an image, which makes it unique, and allow its accurate identification. Techniques such as Color Histogram, Eigen Values and Match Point are used for image retrieval and its performance is studied wrt to retrieval time and efficiency. This paper primarily focused on Wavelet based Content based Image retrieval [24]. To check the retrieval performance, Image database containing face database, floral database, vehicle database and Animal Database is created. Retrieval efficiency and accuracy using wavelet based features is found to be superior to other existing methods such as Color Histogram, Eigen Values, Match Point method.
