Recent rapid growth in the demand for technology and image investigation in many applications, such as image retrieval systems and Visual Object Categorization (VOC), effective management of these applications has become crucial. Computer vision and its various applications are a primary focus of research. Content-based image retrieval is considered an extremely challenging issue and has remained an open research area. Obviously, the main challenge associated with this kind of research is the

Several methods have been proposed to increase the performance of the system and reduce the semantic gap. These proposed techniques make use of either global or local features or a combination of both global and local features on one side and the visual content and keyword-based retrieval on the other side. However, the aim of this study is to provide a constructive critique of the algorithms used in extracting the low-level features, either globally or locally or as a combination of both. In addition, it identifies the factors that can affect the low-level features that lead to the semantic gap. As well as, proposed a new framework to improve the Gabor filter and the edge histogram limitations. Finally, recommendations are made for the choice of the descriptors used to describe the low-level features, both locally and globally, depending on the area of limitations or drawbacks of the previous state-of-the-art research.
