Abstract: In this paper, the problem of classification of images is discussed. Our specific problem is that we need to classify tire images into selected classes. The classes are characterized by some patterns. In the first step images are represented as the vectors. Then the membership and non-membership value to each coordinate of the vector is calculated and the theory of intuitionistic fuzzy sets is used. In [7] the classification of images was performed with respect to the valued of so called Sim function, which was defined as a ratio of distance between pattern data and image data and distance between pattern data and the complement of image data. The complement of image data was obtained by using specific intuitionistic fuzzy negation. In [2] a list of 53 intuitionistic fuzzy negations was presented. We have decided to use some of these negations to improve the results of classification.
