Image searching is one of the most interesting topics in the coming future. Comparing two images and linear search will take a lot of time. Rather than comparing the images, its better to look for similarity search. Feature extraction and bag of words are the most effective way of searching for similarity of images. We have propsed these two approaches in this paper.

Feature Extraction

Bag of Words

Searching an image from a large image data base takes lot of time. Searching data based on features will gain tremendous amount of gain in time because very few features are stored for each image. Like wise bag of words also store lesser information of each image and hence very effective in searching of image .
