This paper systematically investigates the effect of image texture features on batik motif retrieval performance. The retrieval process uses a query motif image to find matching motif images in a database. In this study, feature fusion of various image texture features such as Gabor, Log-Gabor, Grey Level Co-Occurrence Matrices (GLCM), and Local Binary Pattern (LBP) features are attempted in motif image retrieval. With regards to performance evaluation, both individual features and fused feature sets are applied. Experimental results show that optimal feature fusion outperforms individual features in batik motif retrieval. Among the individual features tested, Log-Gabor features provide the best result. The proposed approach is best used in a scenario where a query image containing multiple basic motif objects is applied to a dataset in which retrieved images also contain multiple motif objects. The retrieval rate achieves 84.54% for the rank 3 precision when the feature space is fused with Gabor, GLCM and Log-Gabor features. The investigation also shows that the proposed method does not work well for a retrieval scenario where the query image contains multiple basic motif objects being applied to a dataset in which the retrieved images only contain one basic motif object.
