This paper presents the comparison of Texture classification algorithms based on Gabor Wavelets. The focus of this paper is on feature extraction scheme for texture classification. The texture feature for an image can be classified using texture descriptors. In this paper we have used Homogeneous texture descriptor that uses Gabor Wavelets concept. For texture classification, we have used online texture database that is Brodatz’s database and three advanced well known classifiers: Support Vector Machine, K-nearest neighbor method and decision tree induction method. The results shows that classification using Support vector machines gives better results as compare to the other classifiers. It can accurately discriminate between a testing image data and training data.
