If you are using a set of Gabor filters with different orientations and frequencies, then you have a host of features you can extract. A Gabor filter is essentially a sinusoidal signal with a given frequency and orientation, modulated by a Gaussian.
You can use it for edge and object detection, image representation and coding, color or pattern gradient, etc.
