The diversity of display technologies and introduction of high dynamic range imagery introduces the necessity of comparing images of radically different dynamic ranges. Current quality assessment metrics are not suitable for this task, as they assume that both reference and test images have the same dynamic range. Image fidelity measures employed by a(More)
We present an efficient and simple method for introducing temporal consistency to a large class of optimization driven image-based computer graphics problems. Our method extends recent work in edge-aware filtering, approximating costly global regularization with a fast iterative joint filtering operation. Using this representation, we can achieve tremendous(More)
Numerous current Computer Graphics methods produce video sequences as their outcome. The merit of these methods is often judged by assessing the quality of a set of results through lengthy user studies. We present a full-reference video quality metric geared specifically towards the requirements of Computer Graphics applications as a faster computational(More)
Many quality metrics take as input gamma corrected images and assume that pixel code values are scaled perceptually uniform. Although this is a valid assumption for darker displays operating in the luminance range typical for CRT displays (from 0.1 to 80 cd/m), it is no longer true for much brighter LCD displays (typically up to 500 cd/m), plasma displays(More)
Recent subjective studies showed that current tone mapping operators either produce disturbing temporal artifacts, or are limited in their local contrast reproduction capability. We address both of these issues and present an HDR video tone mapping operator that can greatly reduce the input dynamic range, while at the same time preserving scene details(More)
We present a perceptually calibrated system for automatic aesthetic evaluation of photographic images. Our work builds upon the concepts of no-reference image quality assessment, with the main difference being our focus on rating image aesthetic attributes rather than detecting image distortions. In contrast to the recent attempts on the highly subjective(More)
In this paper we propose a new dataset for evaluation of image/video quality metrics with emphasis on applications in computer graphics. The proposed dataset includes LDR-LDR, HDR-HDR, and HDR-LDR reference-test video pairs with various types of distortions. We also present an example evaluation of recent image and video quality metrics that were applied in(More)
Synthetically generating images and video frames of complex 3D scenes using some photo-realistic rendering software is often prone to artifacts and requires expert knowledge to tune the parameters. The manual work required for detecting and preventing artifacts can be automated through objective quality evaluation of synthetic images. Most practical(More)
Recently proposed edge-preserving multi-scale image decompositions enable artifact-free and visually appealing image editing. As the human eye is sensitive to contrast, per-band contrast manipulation is a natural way of image editing. However, contrast modification in one band usually affects contrasts in other bands, which is not intuitive for the user. In(More)
