Costume based real-time image retrieval is challenging task to accomplish. Such an applications is used in many fields like digital photography, multimedia analysis etc. the proposed method uses color and shape features for image feature extraction. The color features are extracted using histogram and shape features are extracted using edge oriented histogram. The proposed algorithm extracts the features accurately and classification is done using SVM classifier. The results prove that the proposed algorithm works well on real-time images.
