Dense micro-block difference (DMD) has achieved good performance in gray texture representation and classification. However, its performance is not satisfactory when representing color texture. To alleviate this problem, we propose a novel color texture representation method based on Completed Extremely Nonnegative DMD (CEN-DMD) in this paper. In particular, we first use DMD to model interchannel features and interchannel features of color texture images. Considering that negative value is

Due to that the maximum value in a nonnegative difference patch represents a significant difference, we construct the Extremely Nonnegative DMD (EN-DMD) by fusing the maximum values of the intrachannel features and the maximum of interchannel features, and further build Completed Extremely Nonnegative DMD (CEN-DMD) by fusing EN-DMDs at five scales and the global feature of the color texture images. Finally, the Fisher Vector is used to encode the CEN-DMD to obtain a color texture descriptor. Experimental results on five published standard color texture datasets (CUReT, Colored Brodatz, VisTex, USPTex and KTH-TIPS) reveal that CEN-DMD is effective when compared to the thirteen representative color texture classification methods.
