We introduce three new texture features that are based on the morphological scale-space operator known as the sieve. The new features are tested on two databases. The first, the Outex texture database, contains Brodatz-like textures captured under constant illumination, scale and rotation. The second, the Outex natural scene database, contains images of real-world scenes taken under variable conditions. The new features are compared to univariate granulometries, with which they have some similarities, and to the dual-tree complex wavelet transform, local binary patterns and co-occurrence matrices. The features based upon the sieve are shown to have the best overall performance.
