The semantic gap problem and the performance accuracy issues in a Content Based Image Retrieval System (CBIR) can be efficiently overcome by the Relevance Feedback mechanism. Based on this feedback the CBIR system modifies its retrieval mechanism in an attempt to return the desirable output. In designing a Relevance Feedback (RF) mechanism a number of design requirements have to be considered that helps the CBIR system to function efficiently. In this paper the different RF techniques will be analysed by their performance and will throw light on the latest feedback algorithms and their related issues.
