In this paper, we propose a new method of extracting affine invariant texture signatures for content-based affine invariant image retrieval (CBAIR). The algorithm discussed in this paper exploits the spectral signatures of texture images. Based
on spectral representation of affine transform, anisotropic scale invariant signatures of orientation spectrum distributions are extracted. Peaks distribution vector (PDV) obtained from signature distributions captures texture properties invariant to
affine transform. The PDV is used to measure the similarity between textures. Extensive experimental results are included to demonstrate the performance of the method in texture classification and CBAIR.
