We propose and evaluate several deep network architectures for measuring the similarity between sketches and photographs, within the context of the sketch based image retrieval (SBIR) task. We study the ability of our networks to generalize across diverse object categories from limited training data, and explore in detail strategies for weight sharing, pre-processing, data augmentation and dimensionality reduction. In addition to a detailed comparative study of network configurations, we contribute by describing a hybrid multi-stage training network that exploits both contrastive and triplet networks to exceed state of the art performance on several SBIR benchmarks by a significant margin.
