Abstract: Content-Based Image Retrieval (CBIR) is extensively used technique for image retrieval from large image databases. However, users are not satisfied with the conventional image retrieval techniques. In addition, the advent of web development and transmission networks, the number of images available to users continues to increase. Therefore, a permanent and considerable digital image production in many areas takes place. Quick access to the similar images of a given query image from this extensive collection of images pose great challenges and require proficient techniques. From query by image to retrieval of relevant images, CBIR has key phases such as feature extraction, similarity measurement, and retrieval of relevant images. However, extracting the features of the images is one of the important steps. Recently Convolutional Neural Network (CNN) shows good results in the field of computer vision due to the ability of feature extraction from the images. Alex Net is a classical Deep CNN for image feature extraction. We have modified the Alex Net Architecture with a few changes and proposed a novel framework to improve its ability for feature extraction and for similarity measurement. The proposal approach optimizes Alex Net in the aspect of pooling layer. In particular, average pooling is replaced by max-avg pooling and the non-linear activation function Max out is used after every Convolution layer for better feature extraction. This paper introduces CNN for features extraction from images in CBIR system and also presents Euclidean distance along with the Comprehensive Values for better results. The proposed framework goes beyond image retrieval, including the large-scale database. The performance of the proposed work is evaluated using precision. The proposed work show better results than existing works.
