No-reference image quality metrics for color domain modified images

Abstract

Predicting the quality of natural images without using a reference image has always been a challenging task. Numerous approaches have been proposed in the past, but they mainly focused on spatial and frequency domain degradations like blur, noise, and compression. Image quality metrics (IQMs) in literature perform with quite a high accuracy for such types of degraded images. However, their performances are not good on the images modified in the color domain. In this study, psychophysical experiments were conducted to assess the quality of the color domain images. A new dataset was developed for this purpose. Additionally, a second dataset consisting of color domain modified images from the three previously published datasets were used in the psychophysical experiments. The newly developed dataset was then used to develop three IQMs based on absolute values, relative values, and statistical analysis of image color appearance attributes. Their performances were then evaluated together with five spatial domain IQMs from the literature using cross-database evaluation methodology. The results showed that the color-domain IQMs outperformed the other models. The absolute and relative attributes-based models, when combined, achieved the best performance. The present results suggest that more effort is needed to improve the performance of color domain IQMs for image quality estimation.
