As the compact and easily accessible handheld devices, such as cellular phones and MP3 players equipped with image acquisition functionality, are becoming widely available among common users, various applications of images are rapidly increasing. Image related services and software such as web-based image presentation and image manipulation for personal or commercial purpose enable users to view contents of remote image archive and to manipulate enormous amount of images in local or network based storage as well. It is necessary for users to identify the images efficiently so that the same images are perceived as one physical entity instead of recognizing them as different images as the trends are getting stronger. In order to support this environment, we propose a method that generates image identifiers or indexing for images within a solid and efficient manner. The proposed image identifier utilizes multiple index values. The integration of component index values creates a unique composite value that can be used as a file name, file system identifier, or database index. Our experimental results on generation of constituent index values have shown favorable results.
