(eng): Recent advances in illumination invariance and textural features were utilized in the construction of a content based tile retrieval system, which eases laborious browsing of large tile catalogues. Regardless of whether a user is choosing tiles for their house or designing a prestigious office building, this computer-aided consulting system will help to select the right tiles by suggesting tiles which have similar colours and / or patterns as some other tiles that the user likes. The performance of the system was verified on a large commercial tile database in a psycho-physical experiment.
