Subject RE: Searching On Image...
Date Mon, 31 Jul 2006 09:07:18 GMT
Firstly I am very much thankful to your response...

Can Lucene Index and Search the images in a directory like how the text
(content) of a file is indexed, stored and retrieved (searched)?

Suppose I am having some images in a directory if I index that directory and
whenever I gave a sample image so that the search retrieves the images which
suit the given (input) image on the attributes like color, shape and other
features of an image.

For ex: I am storing the images of chemical structures if any time I want to
retrieve the images which suits on the basis of a sample image like its
size, shape, coordinates of the image etc. can we do this using Lucene? If
so please let me know or else please let me know the different approaches to
do so.
	Waiting for your reply...

Thanks in advance,
S. Naveen.

please elaborate.   what do you want to search about an image?

lucene is generic - toss text at it and then search for that text.   
that text could easily be keywords and other metadata associated with  
an image with a pointer (URL, file path, etc) to the image itself.
