Paper Abstract

Criteria relating physically measurable data of photographic images to the quality perceived by a human observer have been critically reviewed. It was found that the weight attributed to different spatial frequencies in the image depends on the total spatial frequency range reproduced. A new, simple, non-linear, performance-dependent criterion has been derived that yields superior correlation between MTF and subjective image quality with good discrimination over the entire quality scale.
