We propose a method to retrieve similar and duplicate images from a JPEG (Joint Photographic Image Group) image database. Similarity level is decided based on the DCT (Discrete Cosine Transform) coefficients signs. The method is simple and fast because it uses the DCT coefficients signs as features, which can be obtained directly after partial decoding of JPEG bitstream. The method is robust to JPEG compression, in which similarity level of duplicate images, i.e., images that are compressed from the same original images with different compression ratios, is not disguised due to JPEG compression. Simulation results showed the superiority of the method compared to previous methods in terms of computational complexity and robustness to JPEG compression.
