This paper describes the use of genetic algorithms as feature selectors in a texture classification system. This is part of a system developed within a research project concerning the classification of genuine texture. An attempt is made to underline why an automatic feature selector is a useful part of the texture classification system. Furthermore a way of including the genetic algorithms into the system and the necessary feedback structure is explained
