Paper Abstract

Images, in a general sense, include natural images, such as photos, medical images and satellite images; artificial images, such as computer graphics, paintings and drawings; and scientific pictures, such as statistics charts and visualization patches. We introduce an object- oriented scheme for image processing in multimedia systems. Images are represented as objects in a hierarchical structure. Several issues are addressed. We discuss the multimedia object composition issue which includes spatial composition and temporal composition. Hierarchical storing, which possesses good properties for image retrieval, display and composition, is presented. We develop a content-based retrieval scheme using shape, texture and color information. A two-stage retrieval method is presented.
