Content-based image retrieval is a very extensively researched area of multi-media systems since last decade. We present this topic with emergence index in this paper. Emergence phenomenon talks about the study of the implicit or hidden meanings of an image. This gives a totally different search results than ordinary search where emergence is not considered, as taking into account hidden meanings could effectively change the index of search. We determine our index structures based on explicit as well as implicit meanings of an image. We put forward theoretical aspects of image retrieval with emergence index in this paper.
