Abstract: In this paper, we proposed a fusion feature extraction method for content based image retrieval. The feature is extracted by focusing on the texture and shape features of the visual image by using the Local Binary Pattern (LBP – texture feature) and Edge Histogram Descriptor (EHD – shape feature). The SVD is used for decreasing the number of the feature vector of images. The Kd-tree is used for reducing the retrieval time. The input to this system is a query image and Database (the reference images) and the output is the top n most similar images for the query image. The proposed system is evaluated by using (precision and recall) to measure the retrieval effectiveness. The values of the recall are between [43% –93%] and the average recall is 64.3%. The values of precision are between [30%-100%] and the average is 72.86% for the entire system and for both databases.
