Searching for a relevant image in an archive is a problematic research issue for the computer vision research community. The majority of search engines retrieve images using traditional text-based approaches that rely on captions and metadata. Extensive research has been reported in the last two decades for content-based image retrieval (CBIR), analysis, and image classification. Content-Based Image Retrieval is a process that provides a framework for image search, and low-level visual features are commonly used to retrieve the images from the image database. The essential requirement in any image retrieval process is to sort the images with a close similarity in terms of visual appearance. The shape, color, and texture are examples of low-level image features. In image classification-based models and CBIR, high-level image visuals are expressed in the form of feature vectors made up of numerical values. The researcher's findings a significant gap between human visual comprehension and image feature representation. In this paper, we plan to present a comparison study and a comprehensive overview of the recent developments in the field of CBIR and image representation.
