Owing to information explosion, image databases are growing at the same pace as text and multimedia content. To organize and to search a desired image relevant to the content becoming a crucial problem that demands for efficient and effective tools in this context. Content based image retrieval systems (CBIR) have become very popular offering relatively less/nil human intervention. Efficient automatic image indexing is a real challenge for computer vision and content based image retrieval. In content based image retrieval system, an image is searched based on the contents similar to the query image. The image content can be described by a set of local features. In this paper, an overview of various attributes of an image is provided that are used in designing an efficient and inexpensive image indexing technique, the problems and challenges of different data storage structure for content based image database system. An attempt is also made to describe the existing solutions and applications in this area.
