In this paper, we introduce a region-based image retrieval system, FRIP. This system includes a robust image segmentation scheme using scaled & shifted color and shape description scheme using Modified Radius-based Signature. For image segmentation, by using our proposed circular filter, we can keep the boundary of object naturally and merge small senseless regions of object into a whole body. For efficient shape description, we extract 5 features from each region: color, texture, scale, location, and shape. From these features, we calculate the similarity distance between the query and database regions and it returns the top K-nearest neighbor regions.
