Color is an important and the vital visual feature for image recognition. The use of image color is one of the most interesting issues in creation efficient content-based image retrieval. Color feature cannot be defined exactly as defining the likeness among color feature is difficult [1]. Therefore, two steps are needed in color-based image recovery, i.e., image color feature extraction and similarity computation among the extracted features. Some of the applications of image retrieval using color are described in this chapter.
