Perceptual evaluation of tone-reproduction operators using the Cornsweet--Craik--O'Brien illusion
Ahmet Oğuz Akyüz, Erik Reinhard
Article No.: 1
DOI: 10.1145/1278760.1278761

High dynamic-range images cannot be directly displayed on conventional display devices, but have to be tone-mapped first. For this purpose, a large set of tone-reproduction operators is currently available. However, it is unclear which operator is...

Content and quality: Interpretation-based estimation of image quality
Jenni Radun, Tuomas Leisti, Jukka Häkkinen, Harri Ojanen, Jean-Luc Olives, Tero Vuori, Göte Nyman
Article No.: 2
DOI: 10.1145/1278760.1278762

Test image contents affect subjective image-quality evaluations. Psychometric methods might show that contents have an influence on image quality, but they do not tell what this influence is like, i.e., how the contents influence image quality. To...

Perceptual dependencies in information visualization assessed by complex visual search
Ronald Van den Berg, Frans W. Cornelissen, Jos B. T. M. Roerdink
Article No.: 3
DOI: 10.1145/1278760.1278763

A common approach for visualizing data sets is to map them to images in which distinct data dimensions are mapped to distinct visual features, such as color, size and orientation. Here, we consider visualizations in which different data dimensions...

Evaluating the perceptual realism of animated facial expressions
Christian Wallraven, Martin Breidt, Douglas W. Cunningham, Heinrich H. Bülthoff
Article No.: 4
DOI: 10.1145/1278760.1278764

The human face is capable of producing an astonishing variety of expressions—expressions for which sometimes the smallest difference changes the perceived meaning considerably. Producing realistic-looking facial animations that are able to...

Evaluation of methods for approximating shapes used to synthesize 3D solid textures
Robert Jagnow, Julie Dorsey, Holly Rushmeier
Article No.: 5
DOI: 10.1145/1278760.1278765

In modern computer graphics applications, textures play an important role in conveying the appearance of real-world materials. But while surface appearance can often be effectively captured with a photograph, it is difficult to use example imagery...
