If you do not omit the lowest frequency band of the Gabor filters (which
might be the default in gift) you end up with 30720 Gabor blocks and 120
features for the histogram which gives a total of 87446 features.

Line 495 from gift-add-collection.pre-pl tells me that we write out InvertedFileFeatureDescription.db using the gift-write-feature-desc command whose source you can find in FeatureExtraction/write_feature_descs.c . This command should use the exact same settings as are used for the feature extraction. If I am not mistaken the original author of that file (as of the feature extraction code) is David Squire. Is there anything to add (or to change in the code), David?
Yes, that's me.... quite some time ago now. Some of this has changed since the papers in 1999, but not in any really important way. Differences in total numbers of features are most probably (I haven't looked) due to a choice to include features for the lowest energy bands of the Gabor responses (after all, a "flat" texture is still a texture).

I am very busy at present (2 weeks from end of semester). If anything is urgent, please email me directly. I'm afraid that I can't guarantee a fast response at present though.

Some of the stuff in the feature extraction code is a quick a dirty hack that has persisted for years by virtue of being adequate, not optimal :(
