The synergy of textual and visual information in Web documents provides great opportunity for im- proving the image indexing and searching capabilities of Web image search engines. We explore a new approach for automatically classifying images using image features and related text. In particular, we de ne a multi-stage classi cation system which progressively restricts the perceived class of each image through applications of increasingly specialized classi ers. Furthermore, we exploit the related textual information in a novel process that automatically constructs the training data for the image classi ers. We demonstrate initial results on classifying photographs and graphics from the Web
