Tamura features are based on human visual perception and have huge potential in image representation. Conventional Tamura features only work on homogeneous texture images and perform poor on generic images. Therefore, many researchers attempt to improve Tamura features and most of the improvements are based on histogram based representation. Kernel descriptors have been shown to outperform existing histogram based local features as such descriptors do not require coarse quantization of pixel attributes. Instead, in kernel descriptor framework, each pixel equally participates in matching between two image patches. In this paper, we propose a set of kernel descriptors that are based on Tamura features. Additionally, the proposed descriptors are invariant to local rotations. Experimental results show that our proposed approach outperforms the conventional Tamura features significantly.
