Paper Abstract

Numerous research works about the extraction of low-level features from images and videos have been published. However, only recently the focus has shifted to exploiting low-level features to classify images and videos automatically into semantically meaningful and broad categories. In this paper, novel classification algorithms are presented for three broad and general-purpose categories. In detail, we present algorithms for distinguishing photo-like images from graphical images, true photos from only photo-like, but artificial images and presentation slides from comics. On a large image database, our classification algorithm achieved an accuracy of 97.3% in separating photo-like images from graphical images. In the subset of photo-like images, true photos could be separated from ray-traced/rendered image with an accuracy of 87.3%, while with an accuracy of 93.2% the subset of graphical images was successfully partitioned into presentation slides and comics.
