In this paper a technique for evaluating the effectiveness of MPEG-7 image features on specific image data sets is proposed. It is based on well defined statistical characteristics. The aim is to improve the effectiveness of the image retrieval process, based on the similarity computed on these features. This technique is validated with extensive experiments with real users.
