The main focus of this paper is document image classification and retrieval, where we analyze and compare different parameters for the RunLeght Histogram (RL) and Fisher Vector (FV) based image representations. We do an exhaustive experimental study using different document image datasets, including the MARG benchmarks, two datasets built on customer data and the images from the Patent Image Classification task of the Clef-IP 2011. The aim of the study is to give guidelines on how to best
