Content based image retrieval system.

The GNU Image Finding Tool is a Content Based Image Retrieval System (CBIRS). You can do Query By Example on images, giving you the opportunity to improve query results by relevance feedback. The program relies entirely on the content of the images to process queries, so you needn't annotate images before querying the collection. It comes with a tool which lets you index whole directory trees containing images in one go. You then can use the GIFT server and its clients to browse your own image collections.
