Aiming at the problems of Itti visual attention model like inadequate feature extraction, complex feature synthesis process and feature incompatible with existing retrieval system, a better Itti model is proposed to improve the low-level visual features, image segmentation and interesting area in this paper. And then the improved Itti visual attention model is introduce to content based Clothing image retrieval system, the experimental results show our system has obvious advance on the accuracy of retrieval effect than the existing similar system.
