Pre-Attention and Spatial Dependency Driven No-Reference Image Quality Assessment
A new no-reference image quality assessment (IQA) metric that accounts for the impact of pre-attention and spatial dependency on the perceived quality of distorted images and delivers highly competitive performance compared with top-rank NR and full-reference IQA metrics.

Research and development of image quality assessment (IQA) algorithms have been in the focus of the computer vision and image processing community for decades. The intent of IQA methods is to
Evaluation of quality measures for color quantization
A quantitative performance evaluation of nine well-known and commonly used full-reference image quality assessment measures for color quantization is proposed and carried-out and indicates the quality measures that have closer performances in terms of their correlation to the subjective human rating.
Performance comparison of perceived image color difference measures
Performance evaluation and comparison of objective image color difference measures is presented using conventional correlation performance measures and robust receiver operating characteristic (ROC) based analyses.
A combined full-reference image quality assessment method based on convolutional activation maps
A novel, combined approach which predicts the perceptual quality of a distorted image by compiling a feature vector from convolutional activation maps, which is able to significantly outperform the state-of-the-art on these benchmark databases.


PerSIM: Multi-resolution image quality assessment in the perceptually uniform color domain
In the proposed perceptual similarity index (PerSIM), a multi-resolution approach is followed to mimic the hierarchical nature of human visual system and outperforms all the compared metrics in the overall databases in terms of ranking, monotonic behavior and linearity.
Image quality assessment and color difference
This work examines how perceptual color difference-based metric (PCDM) performs compared to PSNR, CIEDE2000, SSIM, MS-SSIM and CW- SSIM on the LIVE database and shows that PCDM captures color-based artifacts that can not be captured by structure-based metrics.
No-Reference Image Quality Assessment in the Spatial Domain
Despite its simplicity, it is able to show that BRISQUE is statistically better than the full-reference peak signal-to-noise ratio and the structural similarity index, and is highly competitive with respect to all present-day distortion-generic NR IQA algorithms.
Image quality assessment: from error visibility to structural similarity
A structural similarity index is developed and its promise is demonstrated through a set of intuitive examples, as well as comparison to both subjective ratings and state-of-the-art objective methods on a database of images compressed with JPEG and JPEG2000.
No-reference image quality assessment based on log-derivative statistics of natural scenes
The proposed algorithm, called DErivative Statistics-based QUality Evaluator (DESIQUE), extracts image quality-related statistical features at two image scales in both the spatial and frequency domains using a log-derivative statistical model of natural scenes.

This work proposes an information fidelity criterion that quantifies the Shannon information that is shared between the reference and distorted images relative to the information contained in the reference image itself, and demonstrates the performance of the algorithm by testing it on a data set of 779 images.
FSIM: A Feature Similarity Index for Image Quality Assessment
A novel feature similarity (FSIM) index for full reference IQA is proposed based on the fact that human visual system (HVS) understands an image mainly according to its low-level features.
Measuring images: differences, quality, and appearance
The modular framework for modular color image difference framework is reviewed, and several new techniques for reducing the multi-dimensional error map into a single metric are introduced.

This paper proposes an RRIQA algorithm based on a divisive normalization image representation that is cross-validated using two publicly-accessible subject-rated image databases and demonstrates good performance across a wide range of image distortions.
Information Content Weighting for Perceptual Image Quality Assessment
This paper aims to test the hypothesis that when viewing natural images, the optimal perceptual weights for pooling should be proportional to local information content, which can be estimated in units of bit using advanced statistical models of natural images.
